About the school

Hydrogen is a longstanding energy solution to achieve low-carbon, secure, and affordable energy future. Many technological aspects, however, still require effective solutions. HyTack is a collaborative project between two Norwegian universities (University of Stavanger, UiS, and University of South-Eastern Norway, USN), Savitribai Phule Pune university (SPPU) in India, two universities in Japan (Tohoku University, TU, Shibaura Institute of Technology, SIT) and research institutes: Institute for energy Technology (IFE, Norway), Norwegian research center (NORCE, Norway), and Indian institute of scientific education and research (IISER, India). The project aims at developing and providing an educational base (theoretical and practical) in the field of hydrogen technology to the students in the partner universities, partner countries, and to a wider community.

HyTack School 1 is the dynamic and intensive one-week program designed to provide students from the partner universities with an introductory understanding of the latest advancements, challenges, and applications in hydrogen technology. Tailored for last-year BSc, MSc, and PhD students, this immersive experience offers a unique opportunity to engage with, participate in workshops, and network with peers passionate about shaping the future of sustainable energy.
