EPRI Workshop on Hydrogen Embrittlement 2024
Jesus College, Oxford
Date & Time
Sunday 23 Jun 2024 - Wednesday 26 Jun 2024
The Oxford-EPRI workshop on Hydrogen Embrittlement promises to be a very rich event where the latest developments in hydrogen embrittlement research will be discussed. The workshop will comprise a selection of 40 invited speakers from all over the globe, who are key players in the community and span both academia and industry.
Discussion and interactions will be stimulated and the technical programme will be complemented by an enjoyable social programme aimed at further maximising interactions between participants. For non-invited speakers, there will be opportunities to participate in the workshop through a poster presentation or as a regular attendee. Up to 100 attendees are expected in the unique location of Jesus College, Oxford, combining modern conference facilities with a traditional ‘Oxonian’ atmosphere.
The workshop could not be more timely, given the key role that hydrogen will play in decarbonising many applications and sectors, and the material degradation challenges associated with the storage and transport of hydrogen. State-of-the-art experimental and numerical methodologies will be discussed, which can provide new fundamental insight into hydrogen-material interactions and enable safe and accelerated deployment of hydrogen energy infrastructure, a pressing societal need. Contributions are welcome on every aspect of hydrogen embrittlement research.
