We are a truly pan-Canadian research network, grouping 28 leading researchers including 7 NSERC chair holders, from 13 universities and 4 NRC institutes and one NRCan laboratory located in 7 different provinces. The network includes internationally recognized scientists and engineers whose activities cover all aspects of the scientific programme. The research activities are divided into three themes, Production and Purification, Storage and Infrastructure and Safety.
In September 2008, NSERC awarded $5 million in research funds to H2CAN for five years. This amount is leveraged at a ratio of 4:1 through related R&D; activities by network researchers and facilities currently available at participating institutions. Total industrial partners contributions represent 50% of the overall network budget.
