MAP (Institute for Automotive Et Manufacturing Advance Practice) are part of an international consortium that has won significant EU funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU) to investigate social acceptance of hydrogen technologies.

The project known as Hyacinth (Hydrogen Acceptance in the Transition Phase) will provide income of £76,000 over two years and the institute will work with international partners to understand the issues associated with such introductions. The project will be led at AMAP by Adrian Morris and Dr. David Baglee with assistance from colleagues in our team.  Our role will be to develop a “Social Acceptance Management Toolbox” that will assist technology providers to understand the issues that they may face when planning to introduce hydrogen based technologies such as Fuel Cells in specific areas and suggest strategies for overcoming these.
