Hydrogen is experiencing an unprecedented momentum, driven by climate-friendly and energy-safety policies. However, due to its peculiar physical-chemical properties, material compatibility issues arise: hydrogen embrittlement, hydrogen permeation, mechanical integrity at cryogenic temperatures and water vapour corrosion.

The event will provide a chance for PhD students to connect with peers working in materials science disciplines and experience a ‘sandpit’ format often used by research councils and funders to stimulate new lines of thinking for tackling complex research challenges. Participants will be tasked with exploring a set scientific topic, working within a team to identify the challenges faced within the application area, and then exercising their own expertise to devise novel proposals and solutions. These intensive proposal-forming environments encourage the creation of new collaborations, identification of barriers to success and mitigation of conflicting approaches.
