Note: The registration is now closed for this seminar

Welcome to the official opening of the Norwegian Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Centre! The opening will take place at the SINTEF/NTNU campus on Gløshaugen, Trondheim which also is where the low temperature node of NFCH is located.
The opening seminar will consist of presentations of the new capabilities of the research infrastructure and some examples of ongoing research. Norwegian and international industry will present their activities on fuel cells and electrolysers and there will also be an opportunity to visit the labs and meet representatives from all the infrastructure nodes.

We will also have a selection of hydrogen fuel cell cars on site for you to have a look at and possibly test drive during the breaks. 

I hope to see all of you there!
