Research

INORE is committed to enhancing the collaboration opportunities of its members. We believe firmly that it is only through joint research that novel ideas and methods can be explored rigorously and presented fully to the wider world.

This page contains information on our research activities and those of our members.

We allocate a portion of our annual budget for Blue Energy Collaborative Scholarships (BECS) sponsored by OES. The OES-BECS grant, up to a value of €1000 per awarded project, will be put towards travel expenses and accommodation at the research institutions where the collaborative work will take place. It is expected that the collaborative work will further the field of offshore renewable energy, and build upon the strong networks within INORE. In addition to providing an opportunity for international work, the OES-BECS grant also seeks to advance the field of offshore renewable energy through publication of research results and journal papers, making the results of the work available to a wide audience.

(The calls for the OES-BECS grants are made periodically through our website.)

Below are publications from previous OES-BECS awards:

OES-BECS: final call for proposals 2017 (APPLICATIONS DUE: 20th OCTOBER 2017)   INORE is pleased to announce the 2017 call for BECS (Blue Energy Collaborative Scholarships) proposals sponsored by OES (Ocean Energy Systems). Do you have a research project that has the potential to provide collaborative work with other INOREans? Does your research require use of facilities that are unavailable at your institute, but are available at the institute of a fellow INOREan? Are you looking for funding to help support the travel costs to enable this project to take place or to present your collaboration with another INOREan in a conference?

The BECS grant, up to 1000€, will be put towards travel expenses and accommodation at the research institutes where the collaborative work will take place or be presented (conference). It is expected that the work will advance formative research in the field of offshore renewable energy and promote collaboration and communication amongst early-career professionals from diverse disciplines, institutions, and nations. In addition to providing an opportunity for international work, the OES-BECS grant seeks to advance the field of offshore renewable energy through publication of research results and journal papers, making the results of the work accessible to a wide audience.
