The two-year $5 million Hydrogen RD&D International Collaboration Program is a key milestone in CSIRO’s recently launched Hydrogen Industry Mission. It is funded by the Australian Government, and follows partnerships signed with Germany, Singapore and Japan to accelerate the development of low emissions technologies, including hydrogen, that will drive investment and job creation in Australia.

The program seeks to:

  • increase collaboration within Australia between industry and the research community to realise transformative clean hydrogen industry solutions
  • build and strengthen national and international research and industry partnerships to support efforts to build clean hydrogen export pathways
  • advance low emission technology development within Australia in order to add value and reduce costs in all stages of the hydrogen value chain
  • develop capability and solutions to respond to domestic and global clean hydrogen industry opportunities.

Proposed program activities include supporting researcher exchanges, developing collaboration tools and events and enabling sharing of knowledge about research relevant to hydrogen and its derivatives, such as ammonia.

Hydrogen is a key priority under the Government’s Technology Investment Roadmap, and the Australian Government has invested more than $1 billion to support Australia’s clean hydrogen industry.
