Welcome to the home of the AHRN, the Australian Hydrogen Research Network. The organisation was established in 2021 and incorporated as a non-profit public company in 2023. The AHRN is the community of researchers and interested stakeholders supporting the emerging hydrogen industry in Australia. We foster excellence in hydrogen-related research through an ongoing program of seminars and knowledge-sharing activities. By providing thought leadership, advocacy, and research tools, the AHRN offers its members domestic networking  opportunities as well as access to international collaborations.

International Research Fellowships

The International Hydrogen Research Fellowship Program supports research in areas of critical national importance, by providing the opportunity for early to mid-career researchers in Australia to partner with researchers overseas.

We have awarded 20 fellowships, and Expressions of Interest are now open for our third and final round.

Find out how to express interest in a research fellowship. Family assistance is available to fellowship holders. EOI applications are due by 5.00pm Friday 5 July 2024.

International Research Delegations

The International Collaboration for Hydrogen Research led delegations for Australia's researchers to learn more about hydrogen activities in other countries. In 2022, research delegations went to Germany, France, Japan, UK and the USA. During 2023, delegations visited Singapore, Republic of Korea and India. Further delegations are being planned later in 2024. Read more about these delegations.
