Summer School

Open to Symposium Delegates only

A summer school on Metal-Hydrogen Systems will be run 2 days prior to the MH2022 Symposium (28 & 29 October). This school will feature 12 lectures on key topics within the fields of metal-hydrogen science, focussed towards PhD students and early career researchers. The topics will be taught by international experts in the field to cover the key concepts in measurements, characterisation, engineering, materials design, applications, and materials properties. The school will run at the same venue as the conference (Pan Pacific Hotel).


Limited complimentary places are available to student and early career researchers. To apply click the link below and submit your cv and other information as requested.

If you are not a student/early career researcher and still wish to participate the cost to attend is $1000 AUD. incl GST
