Framework Programme: 
FP7
Call for proposals: 
2009
Application area: 
Cross-cutting issues

Today’s technicians and students are the next generation of potential fuel cell users and designers, and education now is a critical step towards the widespread acceptance and implementation of hydrogen fuel cell technology in the near future.

Development of training initiatives for technical professionals will be started aiming to secure the required mid- and long-term availability of human resources for hydrogen technologies.

The future initiatives have to be carried out for various educational levels and including industry, SMEs, educational institutions and Authorities. Coordination and cooperation are key factors to fulfil the objective: develop a well-trained work-force which will support the technological development.

Contact with other educational programs like Leonardo will be sought.
