The University of Cambridge has signed a five-year deal with First Hydrogen to conduct research into hydrogen-powered vehicles.
The first project of the relationship will see the development of AI software to better understand hydrogen usage for businesses.
Hydrogen within the automotive industry will be the key point of focus for the collaboration and will be led by Professor Seamus Higson.
He commented: “I am delighted to have reached agreement to work with First Hydrogen in a field where we see huge growth and a conversion of the automotive industry to full scale adoption of hydrogen as a primary fuel source.”
First Hydrogen Chairman, Nicholas Wrigley, added: “The engineering teams within the University are leading the way to decarbonising our futures and their world-class researchers will help First Hydrogen become a leading player in the hydrogen automotive and technology businesses.”
