Dear Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs,

Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents and to the 'Aarhus Convention' I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:

All documents—including but not limited to correspondence, emails, minutes, notes (hand written or electronic), audio or video recordings, verbatim reports, operational conclusions, lines to take, briefings, and presentations—related to the meeting on 14th December 2020 between DG Grow and France Industrie on the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance.

If possible, I would prefer to receive documents electronically.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours sincerely,
