International Center for Hydrogen Energy Technologies (ICHET) has been successfully promoting hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in Turkey. In addition to technology demonstrations, short-courses are affectively utilized throughout the country. A series of capacity building activities designed to increase the knowledge and awareness of engineering students, researchers, educators and policy makers has been implemented. Meeting activities include short courses, technology specific workshops and conferences, project sponsorships and summer schools. System integration for prototype demonstrations forms the basis for hand-on practical learning through university-industry collaboration in the laboratory. All these activities facilitate knowledge transfer, exchange of information at regional, national and international levels and involve academics, researchers, experts and service providers to further develop their knowledge and interest on hydrogen energy technologies in Turkey.
