A delegation from the Polish region of Wielkopolska visits the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation and various community companies during this week

The mission, headed by the Deputy Presidents of the secondlargest region of the country, aims to know the Aragoneseexperience in the field of industrial specialization, use ofrenewables and energy transition Poland’s political and economic representatives have showntheir interest in the research and applied innovationtrajectory of the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation and how thistechnology helps solve energy and environmental problems. Zaragoza, February 21, 2019. To deepen the relationsbetween Spain and Poland, to exchange knowledge and toappreciate closely the experience of diverse companies andtechnological and research centers with specialization in theindustrial and energetic fields of the autonomouscommunity is the Objective of the visit that these days maketo Aragon a delegation of the Polish region of Wielkopolska,the second largest of that country.
