ATSE-NAEK Hydrogen Futures Workshop Summary Report



ATSE joined forces with the prestigious National Academy of Engineering Korea (NAEK) to bring experts from both nations together for a one-day ‘Hydrogen Futures’ workshop in March 2020.

Fifty leading Korean and Australian experts from government, industry, research and academia gathered at the Melbourne workshop to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by this important component of the clean energy mix.

The workshop helped build crucial linkages and enabled knowledge sharing between Australia and Korea to create new opportunities for research and commercial partnerships.

The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering was delighted to welcome a senior delegation from the Republic of Korea, including the President of NAEK Professor Oh-Kyong Kwon.

The Hydrogen Futures workshop was supported by the Australian Korea Foundation (through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade), Woodside Energy, and the Melbourne Energy Institute at the University of Melbourne.
