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 INOREan involved, will be put towards travel expenses and accommodation at the research institutes 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. For more information please contact: [email protected]

Free Access to 59 Offshore Renewable Energy Testing Facilities!!!

MaRINET2 opens call for free access to testing facilities    The MaRINET2 project has opened a call for applications today. 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. It is open until 20th May 2017. MaRINET2 is a €10.5m project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, and coordinated by the MaREI (Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland) Centre. 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: “Over the next four years, MaRINET2 will be an important instrument in 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”. Jose Luis Villate, MaRINET2 Dissemination Coordinator, Tecnalia and offshore renewable energy director at TECNALIA highlighted the need of collaboration around offshore renewable technologies: “Access to testing and research infrastructures within MaRINET2 will open collaboration opportunities among different actors in the sector. This is a positive development”. Christophe Maisondieu, Marinet2 Access Coordinator, Ifremer welcomed the project: “The first Marinet project supported 178 projects over a period of 4.5 years, and had a considerable impact...
