The Material Energy Research Laboratory in Nanoscale (MERLiN) at the University of New South Wales, led by Prof. Kondo-François Aguey-Zinsou, has developed a metal alloy to store hydrogen in solid form, in a material that can withstand large temperature variations, and prevent the risk of explosion. The group of researchers is now working on a pilot system capable of producing hydrogen via water hydrolysis from renewable energies, storing it with the help of their metal alloy

The SAAFE program supports Early Career Researchers at PhD and postdoctoral levels to travel from Australia to France, and from France to Australia, to initiate sustainable research networks and linkages to support Australia and France in research and innovation. Meltem Bayrak, PhD student of RMIT University and CSIRO, is seeking to better understand the role of food structure in controlling digestion, using gels of casein, a family of common milk proteins, as a model system.
