University of Ulster

HySAFER is one of key ‎providers of hydrogen safety research, engineering and education globally. It has been formally established in 2008 by Prof Molkov following the successful participation in EU Network of Excellence “Safety of hydrogen as an energy carrier (NoE HySafe)“ (2004-2009).

The focus in research is on theoretical and numerical methods and close collaboration with international centres of excellence in experimental studies.

HySAFER was invited by Imperial College to champion hydrogen safety research in the UK through the EPSRC ‎SUPERGEN H2FC Hub. HySAFER leads doctoral education in hydrogen safety in the UK through two ‎EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training.

£10M of external funding through 30 national and European ‎projects, all related to hydrogen safety (2004-2020).‎ 130 person-years of accumulated knowledge and experience in hydrogen safety since 2004.
