59 Successful Graduates in "Green Hydrogen" from Africa
All 59 students of the International Master's Program in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH) had a reason to celebrate: They successfully completed their master's program and were given a ceremonial send-off in October. They are the first graduates of the IMP-EGH, through which Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University are equipping young people from West African countries for the future of "green hydrogen".
In April, the students came to Germany to complete their master's theses at Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University under the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), with the University of Rostock also participating. Meanwhile, 72 new master's students are poised to begin their studies in Lomé, the capital of Togo. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing funding for this two-year program as part of the "Innovations for the Energy Transition" energy research initiative, with an initial allocation of eight million euros until 2025.
