In addition to his industrial experience, Bart has been politically active in his local town since 2006. In 2013 he became the vice president of the City Council, responsible, among others, for the local economy and education.

In 2016, he was appointed as the Executive director of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, now called the Clean Hydrogen Partnership – a public-private partnership between the European Commission, the industry and the research community. During his seven-year term, a strong emphasis on cooperation with cities and regions led to the creation of the European Hydrogen Valleys Partnership with around 40 European regions. Bart introduced innovative concepts such as Hydrogen Valleys, European Hydrogen Week, and the European Hydrogen Bank. He successfully negotiated the 2.0 billion Euro European “Clean Hydrogen Partnership” which was launched by the President of the European Commission in November 2021.
