University Of Bergen

The University of Bergen (UiB) is an internationally recognised research university. Academic diversity and high quality are fundamental for UiB. UiB is the most cited university in Norway. There are seven faculties at UiB and there are close to 20 000 students at the university. Climate and energy transition is a priority research area at UiB and the aim of HyValue to address challenges related to hydrogen and other hydrogen carriers from technical, legal, social and economic perspectives, fits well with the organisation´s ambitions within the area. UiB leads WP1 (Novel production methods), co-lead WPs 4 and 6.

University of Stavanger (UiS)

The University of Stavanger is located in the western part of Norway and is organized into six faculties. The Faculty of Science and Technology (TN) has a solid research basis within the area of energy– encompassing energy-technology and energy-resources, but also within relevant generic areas, like safety and reliability; chemistry and physics, particularly important in this context. The scientific competence is thus distributed over several departments at the faculty. For the current context, however, key personnel are located at the Department of Safety, Economy and Planning and Department of Energy Technology. In addition, personal with expertise in innovation research from the UiS business school will be involved in the project. UiS contributes in several work packages, but with a particular focus on work package 4 – Safety science and risk which UiS lead. In addition, UiS is participating in WPs 1,2,5,6.

Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH (FZJ)

Forschungszentrum Jülich (FJZ) is one of the major interdisciplinary research centres in Europe. FJZ conducts research to provide comprehensive solutions to the grand challenges facing society in the fields of energy and environment, information and brain research. They belive HyValue will provide an excellent collaborative environment. FJZ has more than 25 years of active research in the context of nuclear safety. FJZ are also the contributor to the recent OECD/NEA "Status Report on Hydrogen Management and Related Computer Codes" and "Technical Opinion Paper on the Use of CFD for Nuclear Safety" as well as founding member of the International Association HySafe. That gives them a broad view on the state-of-the-art in hydrogen safety which enables FJZ to transfer the knowledge from nuclear to non-nuclear hydrogen applications. FZJ participates in WP4 with knowledge transfer from nuclear to non-nuclear hydrogen applications.
