Description

The Tees Valley Hydrogen Innovation Project (TVHIP) aims to support SMEs in the Tees Valley to stimulate the development of a hydrogen low carbon economy, providing knowledge transfer services to SMEs.

This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.

The project will be delivered by a core team in developing networks and hydrogen technology and will help facilitate access to research projects and resources.

The project will offer SMEs a fully funded minimum 12 hours of support tailored to their business. Innovative hydrogen projects would receive fully-funded support for the development of new products and processes. The University's dedicated team will work closely with SMEs to understand their business requirements and what they are seeking to achieve. A support action plan will be developed and agreed.

Examples of areas of support include:

- Being part of a cross-industry collaborative hydrogen network for knowledge and technical exchange.
- Use of an innovation space for research and development.
- Access to a laboratory which is developing and trialling a demonstrator unit based on catalytic membrane reactor (CMR) technology for producing hydrogen.
- Knowledge and contribution to the development of innovative products and services in the hydrogen field.
- Support the development of new products and processes
