The protocol, signed in Toledo, also aims to collaborate in programs of common interest, both research, equipment and infrastructure provision and mutual advice in the promotion and monitoring of scientific activity.

In addition, this agreement constitutes a stable framework for cooperation in hydrogen technologies and fuel cells, based on the extensive experience that both entities have in this field both in Spain and in international projects, will serve to launch new initiatives focused on hydrogen and its technological, scientific and business use, as indicated by a press release.

In this way, the protocol includes several lines of action such as the creation of joint working groups and a joint committee composed of three representatives of each entity that will meet periodically and schedule activities, cooperation agreements and research contracts with public entities and private ones that have to be established.

It also gathers the interest of the Hydrogen Aragon Foundation and the National Hydrogen Center for developing at the same time research and development activities in specific fields such as the generation of hydrogen from renewable energies.

This general protocol of collaboration has been signed by Jesús Sánchez, general director of Industry, SMEs, Trade and Crafts of the Government of Aragon and vice president of the Board of Hydrogen Aragon Foundation, and Emilio Nieto, director of the National Hydrogen Center. The firm has also been assisted by the director of the Hydrogen Aragon Foundation, Fernando Palacín, and the general director of Universities, Research and Innovation, Ricardo Cuevas.
