Kent and Medway Hydrogen Summit


1:00 pm - 4:30 pm



Event Website/Booking Link

Join the University of Kent, University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University to explore what hydrogen means to the region.

About this event

Kent and Medway is a prime location to build on existing, and generate new, research, innovation and skills for the hydrogen economy: a key contributor to helping the UK society reach net zero. Join the region’s Universities to:

  • Explore what hydrogen means to business;
  • Discover the role of research and innovation in accelerating and sustaining hydrogen as an energy vector; and
  • Identify the gaps in our knowledge about hydrogen.

As this is a socially distanced event we will be limiting numbers and really appreciate your positive engagement. We welcome anyone who already works with hydrogen, or has an interest in its benefit as a means to help the UK achieve its net zero targets.
