Europe is shifting towards climate leadership.

Three main factors are influencing the European industry: Green transition, financial recovery and global competition. Underlying all of these are enabling technologies, such as hydrogen-related investments in research and development. The 23 EU countries and Norway have jointly committed themselves to promoting value chains related to these critical competitive factors by signing a joint declaration on the subject. The declaration launched a process led by Germany, in which the projects participating in the first two parallel waves have already been identified and a search is now being launched for projects wishing to follow the next waves. The application is open to companies seeking direct participation in hydrogen-ipcei.
