About the event

We are happy to invite you to the first TU Delft Hydrogen Research & Innovation Event on April 4. The programme will be a mix of visionary plenary speakers, deep dive break-out sessions and our Hydrogen Marketplace. You can meet with researchers for in-depth discussions, interact & collaborate with industry players and policymakers to contribute to the energy transition, and be amazed & inspired by TU Delft hydrogen - and student teams. 

Rector Magnificus Tim van der Hagen will open the event and launch TU Delft Pioneering Tech, the university's new online platform and magazine about innovation and societal impact. Followed by keynote addresses by Allard Castelein (CEO at Port of Rotterdam) and Mattijs Slee (CEO at Battolyser Systems). After that, we host two break-out sessions. The topics for these break-outs are Offshore hydrogen production, Integrated Hydrogen-Energy systems, Storage & Transport and Hydrogen Applications.
