The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is launching its first initiative on Smart Specialisation in the domain of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen technology together with the European Commission and the active support of Rhône-Alpes region.

The workshop will take place on 22 and 23 April 2015 at the Hôtel de Région in Lyon, France. It is hosted by Région Rhône-Alpes and organised in collaboration with CEA and the JRC Smart Specialization Platform, Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS).

This workshop aims at bringing together those regions interested in Fuel Cells and Hydrogen as part of their Smart Specialisation Strategies and strengthening a dialog between Regions and Industry.

It will focus on the role of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen technologies on regional development for both clean transport (cars, buses, captive fleets, etc.) and sustainable and low carbon energy (stationary power generation, energy storage and grid balancing, etc.). The objective is to initiate practical cooperation between European Regions and industry partners in the field of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen by coordinating the Smart Specialisation Strategies.
