What it is about

Processes, materials, economic & societal challenges

The world is changing. The energy transition poses major challenges for all areas of society. Universities play an important role here in driving forward future-oriented developments and training experts of the new generation. The buzzword "hydrogen" is often used synonymously for this change. In fact, however, it is associated with a whole concatenation of processes, materials, economic and social approaches and challenges - many of them based on core expertise at the UDE.

Due to the tradition of the Ruhr area in the fields of "materials" and "energy", the UDE - together with a wide network of partners and especially the affiliated institute ZBT - can provide important contributions. Anchoring the UDE in this thematic field offers a great opportunity.
