Launch Workshop Outcomes
9th May 2022
The UK-HyRES launch workshop took place online with the project team present in person at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution following a Board meeting in the morning.
There was excellent engagement across academia, industry, government, consultancies, consortia and NGOs with over 130 attendees, many staying on for the full three hours.
The main focus was to introduce the team and establish a basis for the upcoming workshops. Key insights were generated following the Theory of Change framework.
Through a series of parallel breakout groups, attendees were asked to debate and distill key insights based on critical questions. Free and unhindered, the breakouts allowed diverse and open discussion. Outputs were recorded on a collaborative working environment. Initial results and analysis is presented below, this will guide and inform the potential development of the Centre of Excellence in Hydrogen and Alternative Liquid Fuels.
Note: Although “Large-scale testing / demonstrators” was one of the most mentioned themes in breakout #2, this is outside our research scope, although the Centre could play a coordinating role.
