The value of αs(mZ)is determined from inclusive jet and di-jet cross sections in neutral-currentdeep-inelastic ep scattering (DIS) measured at HERA by the H1 collaboration using next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) perturbative QCD predictions. Using inclusive jet and di-jet data together, the strong coupling constant is determined to be αs(mZ) =0.1157(20)exp(29)th. Complementary, αs(mZ)is determined together with parton distribution functions of the proton (PDFs)from jet and inclusive DIS data and the value is determined to be αs(mZ) =0.1142(28)tot. Both results are found to be consistent. The running of the strong coupling is tested at different values of the renormalisation scale and the results are found to be in agreement with expectations.
