Grupa Azoty Police and West Pomeranian University of Technology (ZUT) have concluded an agreement to create and operate the Hydrogen Academy in Szczecin, Poland.
Launched within the West Pomeranian Hydrogen Valley established in November 2022, the academy is now officially in operation. Applications for the inaugural edition of the programme opened on March 7th. The Hydrogen Academy will feature a team of highly qualified specialists and experts in hydrogen technologies, as well as scientific staff from ZUT.
The program will run from May to July and take place on weekends at university buildings and partner premises. The best students will have the opportunity to test their innovative hydrogen projects, developed during the classes of the Academy, in the research and development units of Grupa Azoty.
“When we launched the West Pomeranian Hydrogen Valley in November 2019, we expressed our commitment to specific objectives for this initiative. In particular, we emphasised the need to bolster cooperation between businesses and the education, science, and academia in hydrogen technologies. Today, Grupa Azoty and West Pomeranian the University of Technology are launching the Hydrogen Academy in Szczecin to work collaboratively in order to build competencies and professionalise personnel in this emergent sector of the European economy,” said Tomasz Hinc.
