The main focus of the Network's activities is on launching and technically supporting cooperation projects. To establish a professional exchange between its members, the Network has set up various expert groups on topics such as "H2 system", "Power-to-gas", "Market launch", "H2 for public transport" and "E-mobility". The experts meet regularly to discuss specific issues in detail. To encourage young scientists, the Network has been organizing the FUELCELLBOX school competition with around 200 teams from all over North Rhine-Westphalia for several years. There is also the Hydrogen.NRW Research Prize awarded together with the EnergyResearch.NRW cluster, which is intended to encourage young academics to integrate the key topics of the NRW Progress Research Strategy into their final theses and thus support the development of NRW as a research location.
