He Honoka Hauwai - German-NZ Green Hydrogen Centre
He Honoka Hauwai German-NZ Green Hydrogen Centre is a newly created collaboration hosted by the University of Otago and the Institute of Hydrogen Technology Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon. Find out more about this Centre for Research, Networking and Outreach, the inaugural NZ Hydrogen Sumposium held in February 2023 at the University of Otago, and also the community-led green hydrogen initiatives ‘team NZ green hydrogen researchers’ from the University of Canterbury and University of Otago are joining forces on, to ensure positive gains for tamariki and rangatahi across Ngāi Tahu rohe, including targeted activities with Murihiku Regeneration.
Researchers from the University of Canterbury (UC) and University of Otago are joining forces with community-led green hydrogen initiatives to ensure positive gains for tamariki and rangatahi. The intention is that these projects will engage rangatahi across Ngāi Tahu rohe, including targeted activities with Murihiku Regeneration.
