6th Stakeholder General Assembly of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, Brussels, 13 November 2013
At this meeting, I underlined the role of fuel cells and hydrogen in the context of global energy challenges. These innovative technologies can contribute significantly to the Europe 20-20-20 targets, on condition that key technical achievements are met and there is commitment from all private stakeholders. The overall purpose of this meeting was to enable interaction with the wider fuel cell and hydrogen community by providing information about the activities of the FCH JU and giving the stakeholders an opportunity to comment. We also took the opportunity to take stock of the achievements of the FCH JU under FP7 and present plans for its continuation under H2020.
