• Webinar: opportunities for hydrogen-related cooperation between Japan and Norway

    Japan is the world’s third largest economy, and an important contributor to high quality research and innovation. Japan is therefore a high priority partner country for Norway.


    Renewable energy is high on the agenda across the world, and hydrogen as an energy carrier has received much attention in recent years. Japan has worked on hydrogen since the 1980s and has taken the lead in several areas, while Norway has launched a number of initiatives that are of interest to Japan. There has been increasing cooperation between Norway and Japan in this area, but there is room to do more.


    JSPS Alumni Club in Norway and Team Norway Japan would like to invite you to a webinar where we will share updates and explore new opportunities for cooperation in hydrogen-related research and innovation between Japan and Norway. The webinar aims to share knowledge from collaboration in the field of hydrogen in a Norway-Japan context, and to inspire both academia and the private sector to collaborate with Japan in this field.

    Sign up below. We will send you a link to the Zoom webinar later.
