The maritime and industry sector is embarking on a revolutionary journey towards sustainability, with green hydrogen as promising tool in this transformation. This comprehensive course dives into the world of green hydrogen and its impact on industry, ports and the supply chain. The course puts a focus on the increasing role of ports in the energy transition as export location, import hub and offtake platform. The participants will gain the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the evolving landscape of clean energy in port and maritime environments.

The content sessions and visits will be presented by experts, policy makers and industry experts from within the Port of Antwerp-Bruges national and international network.

The live week of the course can be an ideal step-up for the European Hydrogen Week 2024, taking place in Brussels from 18th till 22nd November.
