Fraunhofer competence platform for applied hydrogen technologies

Funding: Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK)
Funding amount IWES: 6,000,000 EUR
Partner: Fraunhofer IWU, Fraunhofer IWES
Duration: 04/2021-03/2025


  • when the Hydrogen Lab Görlitz (HLG) starts operation, data from scientific testing and qualification will be used for the project ontoHy
  • a digital, continually growing data and knowledge collection of high interest for SME´s will be established
  • by using ontologies, knowledge of application-oriented hydrogen technologies can be presented and transfered digitally

The competence platform assists companies with testing, developing and verifying their products. Technical, economical and ecological data is used to enable an accurately fitting characterization for  a certain purpose. This facilitates the integration in the hydrogen circuit. Involving the HLG in the regional industrial network »DurcH2atmen« is a key success factor for this project.
