  • The Finnish Hydrogen Research Forum (H2Finland) is a research-oriented consortium that was established in 2022 to address the growing demand for open and independent discourse and collaboration within the field of hydrogen transition and research. H2Finland draws its strength from nine distinguished Finnish Universities and Institutes, namely the University of Oulu, Aalto university, Jyväskylä University, Lappeenranta-Lahti Technical University , Tampereen University,  VTT Oy, University of Turku, University of Vaasa, and Åbo Akademi, which form the foundation of its operations.

  • H2Finland works along with the Finnish Hydrogen Cluster, a coalition of multiple companies, as well as various national entities from both the public and private sectors when deemed necessary. The primary objective of H2Finland is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the current landscape of hydrogen research in Finland, rooted in factual data, and to pinpoint the long-term research and educational requirements. By identifying these needs, H2Finland endeavors to advance a national hydrogen action plan and a forward-looking vision. This action plan centers on the promotion of research pertaining to the Finnish hydrogen economy, internal dissemination of knowledge, and external engagement with stakeholders and society at large. 

  • Comprising academic institutions engaged in hydrogen-related research, H2Finland extends an open invitation to new universities and research organizations to join its ranks by actively participating in its meetings and expressing their intent to contribute. H2Finland is led by a rotating annual chairperson, who assumes responsibility for implementing agreed-upon operational frameworks and enhancing the organization's activities.
