BMBF funds International Master Program in Energy and Green Hydrogen


The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding the two-year "International Master Program in Energy and Green Hydrogen" with 8 million euros as part of the energy research program "Innovations for the Energy Transition".


West Africa has enormous potential to produce green hydrogen from solar and wind energy and to export it. For this, local engineers, technicians and researchers are needed in sufficient numbers on site. For this reason, RWTH and Jülich Research Centre are supporting the graduate school of the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL for short) in training and supervising students via online tools and on-site visits. Special emphasis will be placed on capacity building in green hydrogen technology, which includes hydrogen production and storage as well as supply chains and application.

For the launch of the program, 60 candidates from 15 different countries were selected from the approximately 900 applications.

Congratulations to Professor Peter Letmathe, head of the Chair of Management Accounting, who is leading the team at RWTH Aachen University in setting up the program.
