The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program 2018 Annual Merit Review and Peer Evaluation Meeting (AMR) will be held on June 13–15, 2018, in Washington, D.C.
The AMR provides an opportunity for the Program to obtain expert peer reviews of the projects it supports and to report its accomplishments and progress. During the AMR, reviewers evaluate the Program's projects and make recommendations; DOE uses these evaluations, along with other review processes, to make project funding decisions for the upcoming fiscal year. The review also provides a forum for promoting collaborations, the exchange of ideas, and technology transfer. In 2017, approximately 1,800 participants attended, and more than 380 experts peer-reviewed 150 of the Program's projects. The reports summarizing the results and comments from past AMR reviews are available on DOE's website.
