We are networking resources

For the market ramp-up of the hydrogen economy, it is important to use all available innovation resources. The H2UB looks at the entire value chain and connects it both physically and digitally. In addition to our start-ups, our members include companies, universities, research institutes and investors. This networking is particularly important because start-ups often have innovative and groundbreaking ideas, but also a lack of funds to implement and market these ideas on their own. At the same time, many players in the industry have the problem that innovation management lacks the decisive impulses and creative minds – and this is exactly where the H2UB is the link between its members!

The H2UB is a project funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
