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.
  • USA: The Massachussets ecosystem including the NorthEastern University
