Hydrogen – Why the hype? Opportunities, Challenges and Recent Trends | Online Course (April 2023)

We are no longer accepting registrations for this course. If more seats become available we’ll announce here and on our other channels. Registrants on the waiting list will be soon informed of the status of their request.

Are you ready to have a quick dive into the Hydrogen hype? Are you looking to understand whether it is a game changer or a bubble? 

The Texas Engineering Executive Education of the Cockrell School of Engineering (TxEEE) is opening the doors to 10  researchers/entrepreneurs/industry professionals from our UT Austin Portugal’s community in Portugal to attend online advanced training on Hydrogen.

TxEEE is hosting “Hydrogen – Why the hype? Opportunities, Challenges and Recent Trends” on April 12 and April 14. In this 4-hour course, UT Austin’s top-notch experts will provide an overview of hydrogen use as a climate solution, discuss recent policy and commercial developments related to building a global hydrogen economy and review hydrogen technology research needs, challenges and opportunities.

Tuition fees for participants primarily affiliated with Portuguese institutions will not be charged as they will be covered by the UT Austin Portugal Program’s budget at UT Austin. To this end, you should fill out a specific form:

Registrations Closed

Only ten seats are available, which will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve approach. Participants without primary affiliation to Portuguese institutions will not be accepted into the course.

This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to expand your knowledge about this versatile energy solution and learn how it may contribute to energy transition towards a net-zero economy.
