The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is promoting research cooperation with Japan on the subject of green hydrogen. All details are regulated by a specific funding call. The application deadline is September 10, 2021.
The following research subtopics are targeted:
Efficient and sustainable materials for hydrogen technologies; especially novel and innovative approaches for identifying suitable materials including life-cycle assessment”
Sustainable propulsion for maritime transport based on Green Hydrogen
(1) Innovative highly efficient synthetic fuels based on green hydrogen: synthesis, chemical processes and concepts for utilization including unconventional synthesis routes such as green ammonia as fuel.
(2) Research on and analysis of combustion processes using Artificial Intelligence, numerical analysis, fluid dynamics, etc. with particular regard to the developments under (1).
(3) Design and analysis of new combustion systems.
(4) Innovations on highly efficient fuel cells for maritime propulsion.
Eligible for funding are consortia composed of at least four partners (“2+2”), two of them on the Japanese side and two on the German side. For each country, these consortia should include at least one university or research institution and one company.
The funding takes the form of a non-repayable grant within the framework of project funding. It amounts to a maximum of 600,000 euros per joint project on the German side and runs for up to 36 months.
