New member of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy Codes and Standards Division

During the meeting of The First International Forum on Hydrogen Codes, Standards and Safety, which took place in Foshan (China) on 12-13.06.2019 dr inż. Paweł Gąsior was appointed to the International Association for Hydrogen Energy Codes and Standards Division.

The aim of this organization is to use the results of the latest scientific research and best engineering practices to develop and harmonize standards / legal regulations (RCS, Regulation-Codes-Standards) in the area of increasing the safety of using “hydrogen” technologies in the power industry.

It was established in 2016 and brings together researchers from the USA, Japan, and the UK. Britain, China, France, Canada, Germany, Poland. Her works are currently chaired by Prof. Jinyang Zheng (Zhejiang University).

Cooperation with Portuguese Academic Institutions

Rita Dantas

In the framework of the cooperation with the universities of Porto and Coimbra, we will host two people (PhD Student Bruno Pedrosa from Coimbra) and Ms. Rita Dantas from the University of Porto.

Bruno Pedrosa

We will host them from 01.03.2019-30.05.2019. The scientific supervisors will be Dr Grzegorz Lesiuk and Prof. Mieczysław Szata (Dr Lesiuk is also the supervisor of Ms. Rita Dantas in Porto).

Guests will actively participate in experimental research conducted under the supervision of Dr Lesiuk. We expect that they will present the results of their research at one of the cyclical seminars organized by our Department.

We hope that the positive effects of the cooperation will result in an intensive personal exchange.
