  • Ryuichi Hirotani, Senior Manager at Iwatani Corporation will introduce his company’s ambitious activities towards the goal of realizing a Japanese Hydrogen Society, as well as its business relations with Germany.

The presentations will be in English, but we will also have an interpreter around for questions and comments in Japanese. After the talks you are invited to a buffet reception with plenty of networking time.
