The “Strategic Collaborations Towards Technology Development Transforming The Global Fuel Cell Vehicles Market, 2020 – 2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
This study gives us a detailed analysis of the current and future scenarios of FCEV sales, stations, hydrogen fuel, and the push from governments for their adoption in regions like North America, Europe, China, Japan, and South Korea. It can be used to gain insights into OEM strategies in establishing a profitable supply chain and to track the various automotive trends and their impact on the FCEV market.

A recent study shows that 89% of business buyers rank the experience provided by a company at the same level as its products and services, and 82% are ready to pay more for a great experience. Given this reality, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have the potential to transform sales forever, as they offer organizations the power to build strategic, adaptive sales processes that can be tailored to enrich each customer’s buying experience.
The Power Of AI
As a McKinsey research shows, companies that have pioneered the use of AI in sales have seen benefits, including an increase in leads and appointments of more than 50%, cost reductions of 40% to 60% and call time reductions of 60% to 70%. Here are four important ways AI
The government of Ghana has hailed the extraordinary role that the Science Granting Councils Initiative (SGCI) has played over the last five years in helping transform Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in the country.
Special Advisor to the Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Oliver Boachie in an interview said Ghana’s participation in SGCI has seen the nation benefit from capacity building initiatives, as well as other support aimed at putting STI at the center of national development.
“We have received training on research management using grant management systems. That is a whole process of issuing calls for proposals, receiving proposals, vetting, allocation of resources, management of the resources, tracking of the output and so on.”
The SGCI is a multi–funder Initiative aimed at strengthening the capacities of 15 Science Granting Councils in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to support research and evidence-based policies that will contribute to economic and
