Main content

The following secondary objectives support this aim:
- To investigate critical physical phenomena by means of experiments and multiscale modelling.
- To challenge contemporary paradigms of safety, security and risk for emerging technologies.
- To understand individual perception and decision-making related to hydrogen as an energy carrier.
- To explore how legal frameworks influence the deployment of hydrogen technologies.
- To analyse the support for, and the opposition to, hydrogen technologies amongst stakeholders (including the public), and how this influences the adoption of renewable energy sources.
- To create a flexible and inclusive centre for responsible interdisciplinary research.
- To disseminate science-based knowledge and raise awareness of hydrogen as an energy carrier through publications, education and public outreach.
