The International Association for Hydrogen Safety was founded by the EC supported Network of Excellence (NoE) HySafe on 26 February 2009 as a non-profit organisation in Brussels, Belgium.

With 17 partners the founding consortium showed an highly committed attitude towards sustainable research coordination and a clear interest to support the safe introduction of hydrogen as a clean energy vector.

With partners from public research institutions, authorities, universities, standard developing organisations and representatives from automotive as well as energy companies HySafe integrates all shareholders and eases communication beyond traditional limitations.

The International Association for Hydrogen Safety brings together research, education and commercial interests to further innovative solutions in an highly sensitive and important field of energy technology.
