NEXT GEN May 2022 - Feedback

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. A great insight into current and future developments. The presenters were well versed in their fields and made each presentation fascinating.
Stuart Bailey - Senior Design Engineer, Babcock International

I really enjoyed it, the holistic and international outlook from senior leaders across key industry and policy makers added considerable value to help steer our future research.
Prof Alasdair Cairns - Chair of Propulsion Systems, University of Nottingham

NEXT GEN Hydrogen showed that there is now a good basis for progress to accelerate as successful applications can inspire and provide the basis for further expansion of potential applications. We now need to put more effort into identifying opportunities for transfer of technology.
John Price - Dir, JMP Systems Engineering / Former Airbus Group Innovations

Thank you for arranging an excellent Marine Hydrogen workshop a few weeks ago. It was a really well run event with excellent speakers – I learned a lot!
Tom Patrinos - Systems Engineer, Connected Places Catapult

Thank you for organising NEXT GEN Hydrogen - very informative and valuable. The information gleaned has really helped me tighten up my thoughts on what we are doing and re-enforced that we are on the right track.
Simon Mcloughlin - Managing Director, C-Fury Limited

It was a great experience with your workshop. The knowledge and experience which was visible there was outstanding and indisputable, and the width of topics addressed.  
Kai Reichelt - Business Development Manager Testing, RINA - Germany 

The workshop yesterday was very good! Found the afternoon engaging with smooth transition through presenters and discussions were very interesting.
Arthur Fox - Electrical & Electronic Design Engineer, Babcock International

The NEXT GEN Hydrogen Workshop was indeed an amazing opportunity to achieve a complete overview of the hydrogen opportunities and the ongoing projects in the marine sector. Moreover, the last session was pointing out interesting strategies and presenting useful guidelines for new project development. It was an honour for me attend at NEXT GEN Workshop that gathered high-level professionals, but most of all it was a learning experience.
Ioana Muntean - Business Project Manager & Co-Founder, Primo Elemento - Italy

It was useful to learn more from the aerospace industry and have the perspective from the IMO. I hope the collaboration and connections made through the workshop really help accelerate the adoption of hydrogen in vessels of all sizes. CMB has already started the process, and hope others will join us.
Trevor Jasper - Director of Advanced Research and Development, CMB.TECH

Thanks for another great NEXT GEN workshop – the discussions and industry seems to have moved forward a long way in eight months. Broad content was excellent, SQEP (Suitably Qualified & Experienced Person) presenters very good in simplifying and presenting the issues/development/research and time keeping great. More of the same please.
Charles Broughton - Principal Naval Architect, Babcock International

I enjoyed all of the presentations which were detailed and informative.I liked the balance between technical and legislative/regulation/policy as there is no point talking in depth about one without the other. The examples of current technology were really useful too.
Dr Simon Gerrard - Corporate Partnerships Senior Exec, University of Nottingham

Really enjoyed the open discussions. Knowledge transfer from other sectors is highly relevant to marine. Huge thanks to all Presenters & Attendees for a very insightful day.
John Haynes - Managing Director, NEXT GEN Marine

NEXT GEN Oct 2022 - Feedback

Outstanding presenters and high level group from both sides of the Atlantic came together to share cutting edge knowledge and lively discussion sessions. This collaborative approach is essential for marine Hydrogen to move forward safely.
John Haynes - Workshop Lead / Managing Director, NEXT GEN Marine

A superb workshop. All excellent presentations with a broad spectrum of perspectives on the current and real-life future evolution of Hydrogen and other alternative fuels. As one of the speakers said - what is in the public domain is only the tip of the iceberg of the R&D behind closed doors. The speed of these developments is extraordinary.
Capt Don Cockrill - Former Secretary General, UK Maritime Pilots Association

Thanks for hosting such a great event, it was the perfect mix of technology and policy based discussions.
Prof Alasdair Cairns - Dir of Powertrain Research Centre University of Nottingham

Personally I found it extremely informative and well hosted. John, your obvious rapport with the presenters brought the audience more than we would possibly have expected in a wider forum and the candid technical discussions certainly showed us all the merits of hydrogen fuel cells but also gave indicators to some of the future sticking points.
Commander Jim Ellis - Royal Navy, Future Capability Group

Thanks for another very engaging Hydrogen Workshop. Very good range of speakers sharing developing technology, experience and classification process in a short concise format - really good.
Charles Broughton - Principal Naval Architect, Babcock International Group

Thanks for a really interesting session today. Of particular interest was the work being done by Nottingham University (and partners), highlighting the potential for us to adapt to utilise the existing IC machinery in operation, along with utilising the existing depth & breadth of expertise (clearly on display today) in conventional/performance IC engineering. A really well run and thought-provoking balance of topics covered.
Jim Mair - Technical Director, Arksen

It really was an interesting event that I found very informative. Not only bringing together like minded individuals but in a forum that allows wider discussion. This event and future variants are a superb way in reaching wider audiences and support collaboration in solving some of these difficult problems.
Dr Thomas Beard - Senior Analysis Engineer, BMT Defence & Security

Thanks again for the workshop yesterday. It was great. I will be happy to participate in next ones!
Dr Cedric Rouaud - Director Fuel Cell Systems, Bramble Energy

Thank you for the excellent opportunity to show our Hydrogen powered boat and tell our story in the Zoom session. As a student team, we are always looking to form partnerships or collaborations.
Emma Alblas - Hydro Motion Team, Delft University of Technology, NL

The session was excellent. I found it very informative and it ran very smoothly.
Mark Fassenfelt - VULKAN UK, Business Development Manager South

Congratulations for putting on such a great workshop - very impressive. There was a lot of great new and innovative content and a lot of scope for transfer of technology to other sectors.
John Price - Director, JMP Systems Engineering / Former Airbus Group Innovations
