Call for proposals and related activities under the 2015 work plan of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU) H2020-JTI-FCH-2015 Closed!


Fuel cell and hydrogen technologies hold great promise for energy and transport applications from the perspective of meeting Europe’s energy, environmental and economic challenges. The European Union is committed to transforming its transport and energy systems as part of a future low carbon economy.

The 2015 Call for Proposals represents a set of prioritised actions, consistent with  the  objectives  of  the  FCH  2  JU,  and  covers  the  Pillars  identified  in  the  Multi-Annual Work   Plan:  Transport,   Energy   and   CrossCutting.   In   addition,   Overarching   projects, addressing objectives from the Transport and Energy pillars, are also included.
