The project will accelerate the development of offshore renewable energy technologies by providing free-of-charge access to a network of 57 research facilities across Europe. Access will be granted through a series of competitive calls for applicants.
MaRINET2 Project Coordinator, Jimmy Murphy, University College, Cork, highlighted the value of the project for the offshore renewable energy sector.
He said: “Over the next four years, MaRINET2 will be an important instrument for reducing the cost of development in Europe’s offshore renewable energy sector.
“It will keep innovative new technologies progressing towards the marketplace, and keep Europe at the cutting edge of development globally. It will also strengthen Europe’s network of world-leading offshore renewables research infrastructure”.
