Projects

R&D projects for HyResearch purposes are defined as having a sole or substantial research focus on an element or elements of the hydrogen value chain. Projects may include collaborations with industrial organisations that can be publicly described in full or large part as per the project description template. Each R&D project would consist of a set of activities that can be linked to funding sources, would be organised and managed for a specific purpose, and would have its own objectives and expected outcomes.

A full description can be accessed by clicking on the specific Project Title. These project descriptions are based on information provided by the appropriate researcher. New projects and updates to existing projects are ideally included over a six-monthly cycle (or earlier for new projects if such information is provided by researchers).

This R&D projects catalogue complements the HyResource Projects resource which houses comprehensive information on Australian hydrogen-related feasibility studies, pilot, demonstration, and larger scale projects.

Guidance notes for submitting projects can be downloaded here.  Importantly, the Guidance Notes include a full listing of the R&D Focus Areas key words for use in preparing a project description and as reference in undertaking project searches below. For new project descriptions, please forward these to Peter Grubnic (Peter.Grubnic@csiro.au) for review and publication.

Caveats and disclaimers on the use of information displayed in HyResearch can be found on the About page.
