MaRINET2 to fund offshore renewables testing through 2nd call for applications

The EU-funded MaRINET2 project has launched its second call for applications. Successful applicants will receive free access to a world-leading network of testing and research infrastructures. The call is open to offshore energy technology developers, including wind, wave and tidal energy at system and component level.

MaRINET2 is a €10.5m Horizon 2020 funded project which supports offshore renewable energy R&D activities. It provides free-of-charge access to a network of 57 world-leading research facilities across Europe through a series of competitive calls.

The test facilities include the test facilities of Centrale Nantes(ECN): the Hydrodynamic and Ocean Engineering Tank and the SEMREV (Sea Test Site).

MaRINET2’s first calls provided €2.3m funding to 67 technology development teams. The second call will further expand this R&D activity and help secure Europe’s position as the global centre of excellence for offshore renewable energy.
