Policy field(s)

Target group(s)
All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from fuel cells & hydrogen stakeholders including industry, research organisations and universities.
Period of consultation
From 11.07.2012 to 04.10.2012
Objective of the consultation

In 2008 the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), a Public Private Partnership between the European Commission and the industry was established through the Council Regulation (EC)521/2008. The research community later joined the initiative. Its objective was to significantly accelerate the market introduction of the fuel cell and hydrogen technologies, in order to realise their potential as an instrument to achieve a lower carbon energy system.
The 7th Framework Programme is coming to an end and Horizon 2020 is expected to start in early 2014. The present consultation aims at collecting the views of the wider public on the fuel cells and hydrogen sector, on research & innovation in this field in Europe, and in particular on the possible continuation of the FCH JU for the implementation of FCH research in Horizon 2020.
