CLEANHYPRO project (full name: Open Innovation Test Bed for Electrolysis Materials for Clean Hydrogen Production) co-funded by the European Union (Granting authority: European Health and Digital Executive Agency) under Grant Agreement No. 101091777, is proud to announce its official kick-off.  

With a consortium of 28 partners spanning SMEs – including SpakNano -, large companies, and RTOs (Research and Technology Organisations), CLEANHYPRO is set to make a transformative impact in clean hydrogen production. 

CLEANHYPRO is the largest European R&D initiative in electrolysers, designed to push the boundaries of clean hydrogen production, and is poised to become the first Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) for hydrogen. CLEANHYPRO boasts a total budget of €13.77 million, with €11.72 million in funding support, allowing it to make a significant difference over the next four years of the project duration. 

Driving Innovation in Clean Hydrogen 

CLEANHYPRO’s primary mission is to spearhead innovation in electrolysis technologies and materials, bringing these innovations closer to the market. As the largest project of its kind in Europe, it assembles an elite team of experts to drive advancements in clean hydrogen production. 

A Multidisciplinary Approach 

The project’s 28 partners collaborate to create a platform offering multidisciplinary services to companies. These services will not only assist in developing cutting-edge electrolysis technologies but also cover critical areas such as characterization, modeling, regulation, and business model activities. 

Project Kick-Off Meeting in San Sebastian 

The CLEANHYPRO project officially took off with a successful kick-off meeting held on October 16th and 17th in San Sebastian, Spain. Hosted at the premises of project coordinator – TECNALIA, the meeting marked the beginning of a transformative journey in clean hydrogen production. 

The meeting allowed the partners to share insights into the project’s vision, goals, and strategies. It served as a launchpad for the project’s mission to reshape the future of sustainable energy.
