SAVE THE DATE: Summer School Hydrogen Nancy 2023 from July 3rd to 7th, 2023

Insights on hydrogen energy from production to applications

The International Summer School Hydrogen Nancy labeled FCLAB organized by the laboratory LEMTA (University of Lorraine/CNRS) will focus this year on “Insights on hydrogen energy from production to applications” in the frame of the current national and international strategies for a large scale low-carbon hydrogen technology deployment. It will take place from July 3rd to 7th, 2023 in both formats remote and on site.


We are pleased to announce that the International Summer School Hydrogen Nancy 2023 labeled FCLAB organized by the laboratory LEMTA (University of Lorraine/CNRS) will be held from July 3rd to 7th in Nancy (France) with possible remote attendance (see the registration section for details). The topic of this year’s edition of the FCLAB Summer School on Hydrogen is “Insights on hydrogen energy from production to applications”.

This event is open to master and PhD students, researchers from academia and industry working in the different areas of expertise in hydrogen. It aims at providing a strong knowledge on hydrogen energy regarding production, conversion and storage as well as integration of hydrogen as a third energy carrier in existing or future microgrids. The summer school will start with dedicated lectures to highlight the targeted objectives in the France 2030 plan for the deployment of a French hydrogen industry as well as presentation of the associated PEPR-H2 (Programme et Equipement Prioritaire de Recherche) project on research in this field being part of the national low-carbon hydrogen strategy.  Moreover, a particular attention will be given to current economic challenges to face and life cycle assessment of hydrogen to quantify the environmental impacts. This multidisciplinary summer school will then treat various technological and scientific aspects and applications covering low-carbon hydrogen production, storage, conversion into electricity in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC and AEMFC), energy storage and finally integration of these devices into microgrids through power electronics converters. Experts from both academia and industry will share their knowledge through lectures and workshops during these 5 days event covering the following topics:

  • Political and economic challenges of hydrogen 
  • Life cycle assessment of hydrogen energy systems
  • Hydrogen production & storage
  • Operation principle, performance and degradation mechanisms of: PEM and AEM fuel cells and electrolyzers 
  • Technical integration into electrical microgrids
  • Power electronics for hydrogen technologies
  • Modeling, sizing and management of microgrids

We are looking forward to meeting you in Nancy or online.
