This document aims at defining a common strategy for the communication, dissemination and exploitation of BEST4Hy project in order to reach effectively project stakeholders and significant target groups.

The document describes the data management life cycle for the data to be collected, processed and/or generated by BEST4Hy project. In the spirit of ensuring the research funded by the EU is made accessible to all, the DMP will also include details about how the research data will be made ‘FAIR’, that is: findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable.

The first BEST4Hy scientific paper published by the of University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering: an innovative methodological approach developed within the project for a preliminary life cycle assessment of materials used in the fuel-cell and hydrogen techonologies, ensuring environmental impact analysis.

BEST4Hy project presentation and main objectives in this article from Anna Marchisio – Hensel Recycling for the magazine The Hydrogen Standard.

BEST4Hy project awarded at the XIII INSTM Congress, Advanced Materials and Green Processes for a Sustainable Society (January 2022, Italy): Dr. Sofia Saffirio, PhD student at Politecnico di Torino, presented its research work in the category Materials and Technologies for H2 economy.

The report describes the activities dedicated to the analysis of existing and novel recyling technologies for PEM fuel cells, crucial for the following steps on characterisation and evaluation of the recovered materials and their application in new cells and stacks manufacturing.

BEST4Hy scientific paper published by Politecnico di Torino, dedicated to their research work on SOC (Solid Oxide Cells) recycling technology, specifically on Lanthanum and Cobalt leaching process for their recovery and recycling as critical raw materials in fuel cells’ electrodes.
