Springschool Hydrogen Technology 2024

March 17th – 22nd, 2024 in Heide/Germany

The Springschool Hydrogen Technology 2024 offers participants a platform for scientific exchange on hydrogen-related technologies and their applications - from the production of hydrogen and its derivatives, storage and distribution to end use and start-ups in this field. Attendees will get exciting insights from the perspective of both research and the hydrogen processing industry.

Last year, 42 speakers from research and industry presented the entire spectrum of the hydrogen economy to around 50 participants. For the first time, young scientists were also able to use 3-minute pitch talks to speak about their own research, which was evaluated and honoured by an independent jury.

The organising team is looking forward to exciting topics and new ideas for our sustainable future with hydrogen at Hydrogen Springschool 2024 in Heide this year.

Important Dates

Registration until March 1st, 2024
Abstracts for pitch talks until March 1st, 2024


The participation fee is 100 € (students and young scientists*) and 450 € (non-students) incl. VAT and includes:

overnight stay from March 17th – 22nd, 2024 (single room**/double room**/shared room in Youth Hostel Heide), lectures and catering during the Springschool Hydrogen Technology 2024 and breaks, all meals, participation at the social event on the day of arrival and an excursion during the springschool week.

Students who are close to submitting their master thesis or dissertation have the opportunity to present their work to the audience in a 3-minute pitch talk (max. 3 slides). The aim is to establish and maintain contacts with future employers from academia and industry. The three best presentations will be honoured with a prize. Please indicate your interest when registering.

In order to offer students the best possible learning experience with our Springschool, we would like to point out that students currently have priority due to the format of our event. For this reason, we have decided to keep a waiting list for non-student participants in the meantime. 

*specifically non-commercial organisations for research purposes (e.g. universities, colleges, research institutions such as the German Aerospace Center)
**limited contingent
