About WaterstofNet

The four pillars supporting WaterstofNet



WaterstofNet is a knowledge and collaboration platform. We aim to contribute to a carbon-neutral society by supporting and realising hydrogen projects in Flanders and the Netherlands. Together with the industrial sector and the government, we enable concrete achievements in the field, laying the basis for further collaboration. By doing so, we assist in the further development of Flanders and the Netherlands as leaders in hydrogen.


Sustainable hydrogen will play a key role in the decarbonisation of our community. It can contribute to zero-emission transport and function as a sustainable raw material for industry, as a means of energy storage and a carbon-free source for heat.

Flanders and the Netherlands host a unique value chain of companies and research institutes that are active in the field of hydrogen. As a knowledge and collaboration platform, WaterstofNet acts as a catalyst for this ecosystem in the further realisation of a hydrogen economy.
