Abstract

The present paper provides an overview of the development of an International Curriculum on Hydrogen Safety Engineering and its implementation into new educational programmes. The curriculum is being developed as part of the educational and training activities of the European Network of Excellence "Safety of Hydrogen as an Energy Carrier" (HySafe). It has a modular structure consisting of five basic, six fundamental and four applied modules. The reasons for this particular structure are explained. To accelerate the development of teaching materials and their implementation in training/educational programmes, an annual European Summer School on Hydrogen Safety will be held (the first Summer School was from 15-24 August 2006, Belfast, UK), where leading experts deliver keynote lectures to an audience of researchers on topics covering the state-of-the-art in hydrogen safety science and engineering. The establishment of a postgraduate certificate course in hydrogen safety engineering at the University of Ulster (starting in January 2007) as a first step in the development of a worldwide system of hydrogen safety education and training is described.
