Development and implementation of the European Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology Platform Secretariat

Objective

The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology Platform will contribute to an integrated strategy to accelerate the realisation of a sustainable hydrogen economy in Europe. The European Commission endorsed the Technology Platform concept on 10 September 2003, which will be initiated by the first General Assembly on 20-21 January 2004. To address lack of experience and diversity of issues at stake, one of the key elements of the Platform will be its Secretariat (TPS) in its support and facilitating role. The present Specific Support Action aims to: - Develop an efficient coordination and governance mechanism for the Technology Platform in cooperation with the Advisory Council; - Implement the coordination process and offer a complete administrative and organisational support to the different elements of the platform (Advisory Council, Steering Panels, Initiative Groups and General Assembly); - Act as Information and Communication Centre for the Technology Platform; - Collect, analyse, validate and disseminate Platforms achievements to the stakeholders within and outside the Platform, and raise awareness towards the general public on hydrogen and fuel cells related matters; - Develop the longer term Secretariat for the Technology Platform.
