he International Partnerships of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy (IPHE), established in 2003, is an international inter-governmental partnership currently consisting of 18-member countries and the European Commission. Its objective is to facilitate and accelerate the transition to clean and efficient energy and mobility systems using hydrogen and fuel cell technologies across applications and sectors.
This partnership provides a forum for sharing information on initiatives, policies and technology status, as well as on safety, regulations, codes, and standards to accelerate the cost-effective transition to the use of hydrogen and fuel cells in the economy.
The IPHE also informs broad stakeholder groups, including policy makers and the public, on the benefits of, and challenges to, establishing widespread commercial hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in the economy.

FameLab is one of the foremost science communication competitions in the world, now running in over 30 countries and originally initiated by the Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK. In South Africa, FameLab is made possible by a partnership between the British Council, the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement and Jive Media Africa. Its core focus is to develop communication skills, but it also provides a platform to share stories about world-class South African research. FameLab has created a vibrant network of young scientists engaging diverse audiences, and also engaging with each other, broadening their views of what it means to be working in science. FameLab is proud to partner with SFSA to showcase inspiring young scientists making a difference to South African society. Participants have 3 minutes to present their research in an clear and charismatic way.
