The hydrogen industry is growing rapidly, with 1,500 new positions to fill over the next three years in France’s Rhône-Alpes region alone. The AMHY* project, centered around Grenoble, was created in response to the need for qualified personnel. Eight partners, including Grenoble INP, will share a total budget of €3 M.
Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA, a major participant in the project, will recruit specialist teaching staff and technicians, and is set to invest €150 K in fuel cells and electrolyzers for educational use. There will be extra lab classes and more in-company experiences for electrochemical and materials engineering students. Other initiatives include a hydrogen major, due to launch in 2024, for the employment-based engineering program; a joint graduate degree in engineering focusing on hydrogen; and a “hydrogen certification” program with 150 hours of continuing education.
