The 3rd International Conference on Hydrogen Safety (ICHS) will be conducted on behalf of the European Commission and the International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy (IPHE) by HySafe (Safety of Hydrogen as an Energy Carrier), a Network of Excellence (NoE) of the VI European FWP (UE contract SES6-CT-2004-502630).

The conference will be held in Ajaccio, Corsica on September 16-18, 2009, and is being organized in collaboration with the principal EU and international projects on hydrogen safety. The ICHS will focus on the improvement, knowledge, and understanding of hydrogen safety to foster removal of safety-related barriers to implementation of hydrogen as an energy carrier.

The conference will improve public awareness and trust in hydrogen technologies by communicating a better understanding of both the risks associated with hydrogen and their management. Since the ICHS will focus on safety issues and measures to encourage more extensive use of hydrogen-based technologies, its contents will be different from other hydrogen conferences. All contributions to be included in the ICHS will be evaluated exclusively in the light of their scientific content and relevance to hydrogen safety.
