How to join the program

If your country or organisation has a program of fuel cell research and development we welcome you to join the work, to take advantage of all the opportunities offered by this task sharing activity. We offer two types of membership:

  • Contracting Parties: the national government of a country can join the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells as a Contracting Party.
  • Sponsors: research organisations, industry, and business partners may join the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells as Sponsors.

A government designates an entity to represent the country as its Contracting Party, this can be a ministry, national agency, research institution, private corporation, etc. Once a country joins as a Contracting Party, any national research institution, company and organisation can have their experts join the work of the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells on a task sharing basis. Both Contracting Parties and Sponsors will be welcomed to participate in the Annex work described above and both will have a representative on the Executive Committee.

Individuals

Experts from the world of fuel cells, from member countries, organisations or companies that have joined the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells are welcome to contact the Operating Agent for the Annex or the Secretary to enquire about joining our work. We welcome new participants.

Companies and Organisations

Companies and Organisations may join the work of the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells in two ways. If their country is already a member then their experts may participate in the work of the Annexes. Please contact the Operating Agent or the Secretary for more information of how to become involved in the Annex work.

Alternatively companies and organisations can join the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells in their own right, as sponsoring organisations, an ideal way to join if the country is not currently a member, or to gain a presence on the Executive Committee. Please contact the Secretary for more information on joining our work in this way.

Countries

Where a country is already a member of the Technology Collaboration Programme on Advanced Fuel Cells, they will be represented on the Executive Committee. We invite interested parties to contact either their national representative or the Secretary for information on joining the Annex work.

Where a country is not yet a member, we welcome new members. Please contact the Secretary for more information. Membership of a country will allow experts from all national organisations, academic institutions and companies to potentially become active in the Annex work, and for a national representative, or several, to be present on the Executive Committee.
