Cranfield University has secured £69 million, the largest research funding win in its history, to establish the Cranfield Hydrogen Integration Incubator (CH2i).

This initiative, supported by £23 million from Research England’s Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) and an additional £46 million from industry partners and academic institutions, marks a significant step in advancing hydrogen technology for net zero aviation fuel.

The demand for air travel continues to rise, with projections suggesting a potential surge from 284 million to 435 million passengers by 2050 in the UK alone.

To address the accompanying environmental challenges, Cranfield University aims to accelerate the development and scale-up of hydrogen-enabled aviation through CH2i.

The project will focus on integrating hydrogen technology into aviation, with the goal of achieving net zero emissions.
