The joint call for applications for the Canada-Germany projects on hydrogen technologies is now open.
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) in partnership with the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, or BMBF) are aiming to fund ten preliminary (one-year) collaborative research projects on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. It is expected that these projects will lay the groundwork for longer term collaborations to advance the development and deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, provide training opportunities for Canadian students and postdoctoral fellows, and offer networking and interchange opportunities between Canadian researchers and their counterparts in Germany.
Hydrogen is a versatile fuel that can be produced from many sources and act as an energy carrier. Hydrogen fuel cells do not produce emissions, only electrical power, water and heat. When used with hydrogen from renewable sources, hydrogen fuel cells offer a zero emissions option that can be scaled for many applications including motive power for vehicles; space and water heating in communities; space and process heat for industry; and power for remote, backup, and critical applications.
The deadline to submit an application is April 30, 2021. For more information please refer to the call for proposals.
