Estonian Hydrogen Week

City of Tartu

Day 1: Seminar and Expo day. Let’s show, not just tell and let’s matchmake!

This will also include a world’s first – guess what 😉

Day 2: Science day – Tartu University will cover all topics and also show a full hydrogen value chain. 😳

Estonian Hydrogen Days will be celebrated in Tartu with a multi-day program. The webinars on the 5th and 6th of July are open to all interested parties.

The two-day event aims to highlight hydrogen as the fuel of the future and discuss Estonia’s position in the development of hydrogen as an energy carrier. There are practical, political and scientific topics on the table. Discussions include environmental issues and how energy companies, governments and European institutions can contribute to the development of hydrogen technologies.

Amongst others Catherine Trautmann, Coordinator for the North Sea-Baltic core network (TEN-T), Grzegors Pawelec from Hydrogen Europe and Bart Biebuyck from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) will present the European Union’s trends in hydrogen deployment. Patrick Cnubben of New Energy Coalition from The Netherlands shares his practical experience in creating Hydrogen Valleys. Henrik Hololei, Director-General for Mobility and Transport, will give an overview of hydrogen in aviation.

The agenda can be found at: www.tartuvesinik.wixsite.com/hydrogendays2021.

The first day will take place at the Ahhaa Science Center and the second day at the University of Tartu Institute of Chemistry.

All interested parties are welcome to take part in the event online on both days. You can register here: https://tartuvesinik.wixsite.com/hydrogendays2021. The discussions will take part in English.
