Academic Member

The Hydrogen Research Institute (HRI) of the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) was established in 1994 and is one of Canada’s leading institutes dedication to hydrogen. Its goal is to contribute to the development of hydrogen technologies through research activities related to the storage, produce and safe use of hydrogen. he Hydrogen Research Institute is a multidisciplinary team of over 50 people having at its disposal state of the art equipment and laboratories. The research and development activities carried out at HRI extend from material science to system development and technology demonstration. The Institute is particularly interested in the development of advanced materials to address the technical gaps needed for commercially competitive hydrogen energy systems, in performing fluid dynamics simulations of hydrogen releases for safety, as well as the safety and lifetime analysis of new materials and hydrogen energy systems.
