    Why do we need hydrogen? The answer is simple: For a climate-neutral economy. Wherever direct electrification is not possible, hydrogen can replace fossil fuels - directly or in bonded form for example as powerfuel Where can I get hydrogen and how can I use it? Green hydrogen is produced by splitting water with the help of renewable energies. In our program, you will learn how to produce, transport and use green hydrogen. In the process we share with you the latest research knowledge from the Fraunhofer IST and show you how hydrogen is already being used by our associate companies. You will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with scientists and entrepreneurs, but you will also get an introduction to the components of tomorrow's hydrogen economy. You don't need any prior knowledge. We will start from where you are now. We look forward to meeting you!

    The Fraunhofer Gesellschaft tackles the current challenges of the German industry. With lighthouse projects, we set strategic priorities in order to develop concrete solutions for the benefit of Germany as a business location. The aim is to quickly convert original scientific ideas into marketable products. In the Fraunhofer lighthouse project "MaNiTU”, six Fraunhofer institutes have been working closely together since 2019 to develop the solar cells of the future. With a planned industrial workshop, we want to involve our industrial partners in the project at an early stage, in order to cover the needs of industry with the bundled competencies of the Fraunhofer institutes involved.
