Unlocking Green Hydrogen Economy for SMEs in Poland

By Project UNLOCK

On the 4th and 5th of June 2024, partners and stakeholders of the UNLOCK project, led by Hanze University, will meet in Rzeszów, Poland, for the 3rd Interregional Event to discuss regional policy improvements for developing the green hydrogen economy. 

Participants will take part in a symposium on “Unlocking Green H2 Economy for SMEs in European Regions” and will visit CEREL Institute of Power Engineering and Hydrogen Laboratory of Rzeszow University of Technology. The event is organized by the Marshal Office of the Podkarpackie Region. During the study visit, participants will take part in a varied program that will provide ample opportunity to work together and share insights, but also to offer inspiration.

Symposium on Unlocking Green H2 Economy for SMEs

On the first day, a symposium called "Unlocking green H2 economy for SMEs in European Regions" will take place. Participants will have sessions on regional policies for sustainable growth, SME competitiveness, and hydrogen ecosystem development.

Afterward, participants will visit CEREL Institute of Power Engineering and Hydrogen Laboratory of Rzeszow University of Technology and have different workshops on solid oxide fuel cells and transforming aviation into a zero-carbon sector.

Interregional learning & engagement

During the second day, partners, together with stakeholders, will discuss the project's progress, have a Steering committee meeting, and formulate the next steps in the project and plans for the future. Participants will have another site visit at ML System S.A., where a workshop on collaboration for driving the hydrogen economy will be held.

The third study visit will not only be an enriching experience for all participants but will also bring the project closer to achieving its objectives: improving regional policy instruments to enhance sustainable growth, SMEs competitiveness, and job creation within SMEs in the rapidly developing green hydrogen economies.
