Canada – Germany 3+2 collaborative call for proposals on low-carbon hydrogen technologies



Take your chance to work together with international partners on exciting research projects on the topic of low-carbon hydrogen technologies!

Working together, the governments of Canada and Germany aim to foster and support collaborative industrial research and development (R&D) projects with a high potential for commercialization. This call for proposals is open to organizations from Canada and Germany who wish to form project consortia to perform collaborative projects.

Projects must be focussed on the development of pre-commercial technologies that address an identified need in the area of large-scale, low-carbon hydrogen technologies within the Canadian and German energy systems. Preference will be given to technologies which generate hydrogen from renewable sources.

To be considered for funding, applicants must form a project consortium and develop a collaborative R&D project. The consortium must consist of at least two German partners (a university or non-university research institution and a commercial enterprise – in particular small or medium-sized enterprises) and at least three Canadian partners (a researcher from the National Research Council, a Canadian research institution and an incorporated Canadian small or medium-sized enterprise). The participants must be unrelated parties (i.e. there must be no direct, indirect, beneficial or constructive ownership interest between these parties).

Application deadline is 21 March 2022
Interested researchers can submit project outlines in digital form via the easy-Online funding portal by 21 March 2022 at the latest (first stage of the procedure).

Match-Making Event on 3 November 2021
This information and virtual matchmaking event will offer an opportunity for potential project partners and consortia to network, discuss project ideas, and be introduced to Canadian and German collaborators working on large-scale, low-carbon hydrogen technologies within their energy systems.
