Research and education
Hydrogen research organisations in Sweden and Finland
Centria has several projects in the pipeline to promote the development and application of hydrogen technology, and hydrogen technology is taught in several courses in electrical and automation engineering and chemical engineering degree programmes.
Chalmers – TechforH2
TechForH2 is a competence center for multidisciplinary hydrogen research with the overall aim of developing new technology in hydrogen propulsion for heavier vehicles as an important step in the transition to a fossil-free transport system.
Hydrogen Research Forum Finland
The forum promotes Finnish hydrogen competence through action plans, visions of the future and communication, representing academic operators alongside other hydrogen operators.
KTH is the largest technical research university in the country and leading in areas such as energy. Two research groups at KTH perform research related to hydrogen and fuel cells.
Luleå University of Technology - CH2ESS
Centre for Hydrogen Energy Systems Sweden CH2ESS is a research and knowledge initiative at Luleå University of Technology with a focus on hydrogen use in industrial processes and energy systems, in close collaboration with Swedish industry.
LUT University is the leading university in energy technology in Finland.

Production, use and storage of hydrogen (PUSH)
The research centre is a collaboration with Chalmers Technical University, Lund University, Umeå University and RISE.
RISE helps support your business in the ongoing transition work by contributing with facts and science. We are a constructive partner and map out both opportunities and challenges of hydrogen applied to your unique situation.
Turku University of Applied Sciences
Turku University of Applied Sciences trains new experts in the forefront of the hydrogen economy. The studies are work-oriented and it is possible to complete them while working. The education is organized in cooperation with Vaasa University of Applied Sciences.
University of Oulu
The University of Oulu is one of the most important hydrogen research centers in Finland. The comprehensive view of the hydrogen future is based on the multidisciplinary nature of the University of Oulu.
At Uppsala University there is research on various ways of producing hydrogen, whether by electrolysis or by means of reactions directly driven by solar energy in biological or artificial systems.
Vaasa University of Applied Sciences
Vaasa University of Applied Sciences is starting an education program related to the hydrogen economy, with the aim of meeting the competence needs brought by the structural change in energy production, which are needed in the green transition. The education is organized in cooperation with Turku University of Applied Sciences.
VTT Technical Research Centre develops new hydrogen-based solutions, and it also offers consulting, testing and validation services.
