Comments

The teaching modules developed in the frame of the EU project are singular at the moment which means that they are currently used in pilot actions and individual seminars. They are not standardized by an accreditation body and implemented in a professional or academic curricula.Due to the different educational systems in the European countries (Compare Deliverable 2) the accreditation of the teaching materials was not the aim of the project. In coordination with the different responsible bodies each EU country has to define its own way of implementing the topic in existing curricula. For this ‘implementation process’ the results of this procect can give important hints which topics could be considered in existing curricula

Comments

The HySAFER centre at the University of Ulster focuses on the area of hydrogen safety and the phenomena associated with potential hydrogen accidents (leaks, explosions, fires etc.). In addition to research, the centre is actively involved in the development of education programmes in hydrogen safety, including short courses. The research activities of HySAFER range from fundamental work to ground breaking applications and primarily include computer simulations, and consequence modelling, of potential accident scenarios.
