Benefits of being a Supporter:

HySafe started by March of 2004 officially. As the project work takes off, information will be generated and documents be prepared by the HySafe consortium. Some of the information and documents will be of public interest and therefore will be placed in the public section of the HySafe homepage. Other information and documents may not be intended for a broader public distribution at least during the project period. The consortium will decide on a case by case basis which of these information and documents will be placed in the Supporter Section. Such documents should be of interest or assistance to the Supporters in their work in the hydrogen related fields described in the Requirements section above.

Supporters will be invited to possible upcoming public HySafe workshops with preference. Supporters may be invited to Workpackage Meetings, Coordination Committee Meetings or the open part of Network Governing Board Meetings.
