£5m Competition for Fuel Cell Manufacturing and Supply Chain

The Technology Strategy Board will shortly be announcing a new £5 million Fuel cells manufacturing and supply chain Competition.   The Competition will seek to facilitate the development of new relationships between fuel cell / electrolysers stack and system developers and companies from outside the industry with technologies or products which could address outstanding supply chain / manufacturing needs.

 The Competition opens on the 26th of November and closes in January 2013. To help optimise the Call’s effectiveness and impact, we are delighted to announce a partnering event organised jointly by the Technology Strategy Board, the Energy Generation and Supply KTN and the London Hydrogen Partnership. This event will take place on Friday 23rd November in London, and will:

– Provide a structured networking and knowledge sharing opportunity;

–  Allow potential project partners to identify and explore areas of common interest; and

– Facilitate the development of project ideas and potential partnerships.

If you:

– Are a fuel cell / electrolysers stack and system developer looking to develop your supply chain or develop manufacturing capabilities; or

– Have a technology or product which could address outstanding supply chain / manufacturing needs in fuel cells / electrolysers….

 …please reserve your place here by no later than Friday, 9th November 2012. The programme for the day will be distributed to registered attendees closer to date.

To gain further insights into the Competition, you may like to take part in a webinar hosted jointly by the Energy Generation and Supply, and Electronics, Photonics and Sensors KTNs.  This will take place on Friday 2nd November at 13.00 pm. To find out more and register for the webinar please see here. In addition, if you would like to keep up to date with developments around the Competition, please join our dedicated Focus Working Group at https://connect.innovateuk.org/web/manufacturing-supply-chain-call.
