STRUCTURING DEVELOPMENT AXES
WEAMEC’s international strategy must be based on structuring areas of development based on the pre-existing forces of the ecosystem, which need to be strengthened :
- Networks of basins and sea test sites
- Innovative MRE technologies and technological building blocks
- Training Networks through Research
- Marine growth and Corrosion
- Intelligent monitoring of offshore structure SHM
Following the discussions held during WEAMEC workshops,
the 6 structural partnerships to privilege with the international ecosystems have been validated. These six partners are strongly involved to varying degrees on the 5 themes that structure WEAMEC’s international strategy:
- Denmark : DTU Wind, Aalborg University et DanWEC
- Scotland: Edinburgh University associated with EMEC and Flowave
- Germany: Fraunhofer IWES & IEE with Kiel University, Stuttgart University and TU Darmstadt
- Ireland : MaREI (Marine Renewable Energy Ireland) including Cork University, NUI Galway, University College Dublin, University College Cork / Beaufort Building (including LiR / National Ocean Test Facility)
- Norway : SINTEF Group, including 7 institutes including MARINTEK and associated with NTNU / Trondheim
- Portugal : WavEC Offshore Renewables.
