H2-Compass as the basis for a targeted research and innovation policy agenda
Throughout the project, we will develop possible courses of action towards a hydrogen economy in Germany from a research and innovation policy perspective. The National Hydrogen Strategy of the German Federal Government stipulates that the H2-Kompass will provide the basis for a National Hydrogen Roadmap.
Data collection via a meta-analysis and a stakeholder dialogue
Via a meta-analysis, we collect data on the development potential of a hydrogen economy in Germany, creating an up-to-date and robust database of needs and capacities through the continuous evaluation of studies, strategies and roadmaps. In an extensive stakeholder dialogue involving industry, academia, civil society and public administration, we are facilitating a common understanding of a German hydrogen economy – for climate neutrality by 2045.
