We have grand news: next year we will be organizing the very first edition of the European PhD Hydrogen Conference, or short EPHyC2024!
Why this conference?
Hydrogen, as a promising alternative to fossil fuels, is ànd remains a hot topic, also in the academic research world. Many researchers in European knowledge institutes are exploring hydrogen-related subjects, but there are not that many purely academic hydrogen conferences available, and especially not solely for PhDs! Since PhD research is at the forefront of new innovation, novel concepts and theories, their insights are worth showcasing! That is why BE-HyFE and Hydrogen Europe Research decided to join forces and create the very first EPHyC conference: a 3-day event from 20-22 March 2024 in Ghent, Belgium.
How will it work?
The conference will serve as a platform for PhD researchers like yourself, to present your groundbreaking work, share insights, and engage in stimulating discussions with fellow experts from across the continent.
From mid-august our submission platform will open for all interested European PhDs to submit a short abstract on their hydrogen related research subject.
More information on the abstract requirements can be found on our EPHyC website, but we want to emphasize that ALL PhDs are welcome, even if you just started and don’t have any results to show yet.
But there’s more! Next to the many inspiring thematical PhD sessions there will be plenty of opportunities during the three conference days to network with all the participants at lunch and coffee breaks. We also offer all participants a social program with an ice-breaker event, a conference dinner and final closing drinks. The conference is primarily academic based, but there will be one industry day where you will get to know many interesting hydrogen-related companies and share your thoughts with the people who work on real-life applications.
And the very best thing? The conference will be free of charge!*
Note: the conference will only be open for European-based PhD researchers who will present their topic during the event. There will be a maximum of 200 participants for this first edition.
So: mark your calendars, submit your abstract before the deadline and we hope to see many of you in Ghent (Belgium) next year!
