This part contains documents which are related to the activities of the Czech Hydrogen Technology Platform. E.g. The document „Strategic Research Agenda of the Hydrogen Economy Development in the Czech Republic“ (SVA) identifies the current condition in the use of hydrogen as energy carrier and particularly determines objectives to which the research and hydrogen use in the Czech Republic should be directed. The SVA is followed with another document called „ Implementation Action Plan of the Hydrogen Economy Development in the Czech Republic“ (IAP). This document defines the way of achieving the objectives determined by SVA. Both of these documents are in accordance with the goals and principles defined by the Fuel Cells And Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), a successor of the European H2 Technology Platform and represents the supreme body in the field of hydrogen activities within the EU.
An implementation action plan for the hydrogen economy development in the Czech Republic(published on 28.2.2012)
The project focuses on deepening the cooperation and reinforcing communication between the bodies of tertiary education, research organizations and sectors of industry.
The main purpose of research fellowships and professional trainings, the backbone activity of the project, is to prepare qualified human resources for the activities related to research and development of advanced energy sources. This includes providing experts for the energy industry on the basis of current needs of the application scope.
The project is designed with regard to mutual cooperation between the key bodies of the energy sector and representatives of the academic sphere which will contribute to a more efficient transfer of findings in the field of prospective energy technologies, in the direction from research and development towards practice and also with regard to the transfer of findings from the practical use towards an educational process.
This cooperation will be realized by holding, and ensuring participation of target groups in, professional seminars, conferences, workshops and other events while hosting the top domestic and foreign experts linked to international networks, technology platforms and organizations in the power industry area.
A partial objective of the project is to create a project support office (PS) which should ensure the administrative support for the applicant’s research teams. The main scope of activities of the PS office will be increasing the potential while obtaining financial means from foreign and domestic grant titles and to minimize the administrative activities of R&D workers.
The project will achieve the above mentioned objectives by means of mutually interconnected key activities following one another where these key activities will generate the following principal outcomes:
- successfully supported participants who have completed research fellowships and professional trainings
- participants of professional seminars, conferences, workshops, field trips and competitions
- successfully supported participants who have completed educational and training activities
- an established and fully functional project support office
The project contributes to the coordination of activities run by bodies active in the field of hydrogen technologies and hydrogen economy. The Platform defines, represents, supports, defends and enforces duly justified common interests of its members with the goal to create a suitable environment for the development of hydrogen economy.
