The Clean Hydrogen Partnership is a unique public private partnership supporting research and innovation (R&I) activities in hydrogen technologies in Europe that gathers the European Commission, fuel cell and hydrogen industries represented by Hydrogen Europe and the research community represented by Hydrogen Europe Research. Its aim is to strengthen and integrate EU scientific capacity, in order to accelerate the development and improvement of advanced clean hydrogen applications.

On 2 February 2022, after concluding the selection process following the criteria established by the Governing Board of the Clean Hydrogen JU, EMIRI was selected as the representative of the advanced materials community, next to 12 other initiatives, as a member of the Stakeholders Group for a four-year term. The members appointed consist of representatives of most sectors along the hydrogen value chain across the Union, including the representatives of other relevant European partnerships, as well as representatives of the European Hydrogen Valleys Interregional Partnership and of the scientific community. 

The Stakeholders Group is an official advisory body, to be consulted on various horizontal issues or specific questions in areas relevant to the work of the Clean Hydrogen JU, that will meet at least twice a year, with a first meeting held on 9 February 2022. The group will mainly provide input on the strategic and the technological priorities to be addressed by the Clean Hydrogen JU and suggestions to enable concrete synergies to take place between the JU and the adjacent sectors or any sector with which synergies are deemed of added value.
