January 2020 - December 2022


The aim of the HyResponder project is to develop and implement a sustainable training of trainers programme on hydrogen safety, especially dedicated to first responders across Europe, improving their skills and resilience, and ensuring proper management and recovery from accidents. The specific objectives are: - Development of a clear and updated e-Platform that reflects the state of the art in hydrogen safety. - The European Emergency Response Guide for rescue teams will be revised to reflect progress, incorporating identified intervention strategies and tactics for liquefied hydrogen applications. - A pan-European network of trainers from at least 10 European countries will be established. - Workshops will be held in 10 countries across Europe to improve the scope and impact of the programme. The materials developed will be adapted where necessary to reflect regional peculiarities and will be translated and made available in 7 languages through an e-Platform. A sustainable pan-European training programme on hydrogen safety for first responders is planned and will be recognised as the standard in hydrogen safety training across Europe.
