Ulster University

Hydrogen Safety Engineering and Research Centre (HySAFER) at Ulster is one of the key providers of hydrogen safety research and education/training globally. HySAFER is involved in fuel cell and hydrogen (FCH) safety research since 2004 as a part of the European Network of Excellence HySafe. Co-founder of International Association for Hydrogen Safety (, member of IEA HIA Task 37 Hydrogen Safety, ISO TC197 Hydrogen Technologies, etc. The thrust is on analytical and numerical studies and collaboration with centres of excellence in experimental research. The goals include, but not limited to, closing knowledge gaps and resolving technological bottlenecks in FCH safety, development of breakthrough safety strategies and engineering solutions. Research outcomes are published in eBook “Fundamentals of Hydrogen Safety Engineering” (
