Prof. V. Molkov attended International Conference on Hydrogen Safety 2019, held in Adelaide, (Australia), on September 24-26th, 2019, where the following research topic was presented “Non-adiabatic under-expanded jet theory for blowdown and fire resistance rating of hydrogen tank”
Rafael Ortiz and Gema Pérez, from the University of Cantabria, participated in the European Researchers´Night celebrated in Santander and organized by the the Scientifici Culture and Innovation Unit of the University of Cantabria. The event took place in the Pombo Square in Santander last September 27th, 2019.
On September 24 – 25, 2019 the fourth follow-up meeting of the European Project “Atlantic Network for Renewable Generation and Supply of Hydrogen to promote high energy efficiency – HYLANTIC” was held in Bristol (United Kingdom) and was hosted by Mr. Jas Singh from Auriga Energy. During the meeting, all the partners presented their progresses from last meeting in Belfast and discuss about the future actions to be done. The next meeting will take place in Porto, next June 2020 during the celebration of the International Summer School in Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology, organized by the University of Porto.
