HydrogenDays 2019

DESCRIPTION:
Dear Colleagues, Ladies and Gentlemen,

The international conference Hydrogen Days 2019 represents a well-established event in the field of hydrogen technologies. And it gives me great pleasure to invite you to its 10th anniversary edition. In contrast to traditional conferences, it combines a technical symposium, providing details of the latest research results, with an overview of advances in the industrial sector and trends in national as well as European policy. This specific format of the meeting reflects the position of the Czech Republic as well as other Central and Eastern European countries with regard to hydrogen technologies which are still predominantly known to only a relatively narrow group of specialists. Both the general public and decision-makers often lack an important piece of information: the irreplaceable role of hydrogen technologies in the future energy transformation towards a low- and a post-fossil fuel era. This can be changed only by intensive dissemination activities and effective cooperation. The Hydrogen Days conference traditionally aims to fulfil this ambition and at the same time to become a hub for establishing collaboration among specialists in hydrogen technologies from different regions of Europe and beyond. This is expressed by the main motto of Hydrogen Days 2019:

Through collaboration to the deployment of H2 technologies

Let’s come together again and continue to discover the latest progress in research, industry and the public policy scene. Let’s find out issues that we have in common and areas for collaboration. Let’s promote further development and, above all, the implementation of hydrogen technologies in our daily lives.

Join us from March 27 to 29, 2019 once again in the National Technical Library in Prague.

Karel Bouzek

Chairman of the Scientific Committee

LEANCAT is an innovative technology company arisen from close cooperation between Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics and the privately owned technology group JABLOTRON. The LEANCAT team has also developed tailored, cutting edge and fully flexible Fuel Cell Testing Stations that are designed to simulate real-life conditions and are therefore suitable for academic research as well as for industrial purposes. In general the LEAN CAT FUEL CELL TESTING STATION has overcome most of the weaknesses and disadvantages of the competing products of large series producers and offers a high level of customization, professional service and after-sales support (i.e. installation, parameterization, development of tailored connectors to customers` proprietary software and protocols).

Combined Muzeum and Depository tour. Václav Laurin & Václav Klement started their own business in Mladá Boleslav in 1895 - today ŠKODA is one of the world's oldest automotive brands, and the Museum highlights this history in the most authentic of places, the original production halls in which the company manufactured cars until 1928. Right next to this site, the biggest and most modern of the company's plants continues the brand's success story, producing new ŠKODA vehicles every day. Depository tour is featuring a collection of prototypes and sports cars, the Depository is situated 150 metres away from the ŠKODA Museum and the ŠKODA Customer Centre.

Since its establishment in 1994, Unipetrol has been the largest refining and petrochemical company in the Czech Republic in terms of turnover and employs more than 4,500 people. It focuses mainly on petroleum processing and on the production, distribution and sale of fine chemicals and petrochemical and agrochemical products. It is an important player in all Central European markets. In 2005, Unipetrol became part of the PKN Orlen Group. Part of the Uni-petrol group is Benzina's fuel vendor, which is the largest 387 gas stations in the Czech Republic and 55 years since its inception, and the producer of lubricants and process oils Paramo, whose Mogul brand has been meeting motorists since in 1927. ​The Litvínov – Záluží refinery is a modern and complete refinery with high hydro-refining capacity, operating two petroleum distillation units, four conversion units and a range of technological equipment for increasing the quality of primary distillation products. During the main production process, which creates automobile gasoline, diesel fuel and liquefied natural gas, also large quantities of hydrogen are produced, which can be used in future for hydrogen mobility.

Invitation

Dear partners,

We would like to invite you to join us at the international conference Hydrogen Days 2019 which represents a well-established event in the field of hydrogen technologies in Europe. Its 10th anniversary edition will be held on March 27 - 29, 2019 in the National Library of Technology in Prague.

In contrast to traditional conferences, Hydrogen Days 2019 combines a technical symposium, providing details of the latest research results, with an overview of advances in the industrial sector and trends in national as well as European policy. The conference is focused not only on specialist in hydrogen technologies from all around the world but also on general public and decision-makers who often lack an important piece of information: the irreplaceable role of hydrogen technologies in the future energy transformation towards a low- and a postfossil fuel era.

The unique Hydrogen Days 2019 conference therefore offers an important chance for presenting your Company/Infrastructure with the expected impact on broad target groups of researchers and all levels of experience and public.

As Hydrogen Days 2019 organizers, we have prepared for you a broad offer of sponsorship opportunities and possibilities to promote your Company/Infrastructure. We hope that in the presented package you will be able to find an optimum product that meets the concept of your Company/Infrastructure.

On behalf of the Hydrogen Days 2019 organizing committee
