News: Final MaRINET2 call opens for free offshore renewables testing

The MaRINET2 project has opened its 5th and final call.

The call is targeted at offshore energy technology developers who are looking to test their device or components. The project offers fully-funded access to a world-leading network of testing and research infrastructures in Europe.

Open until 16 October, the fifth and final call will grant access to a number of research and testing facilities, for developers of offshore wind, wave and tidal energy systems and components. Applicants should check the list of available facilities to see which ones are being offered under this call.

So far, MaRINET2 has awarded almost €5 million in free testing access, across a network of 57 world-leading research facilities in Europe. The project’s objective is to accelerate the progress of the European offshore renewables sector towards full-scale industrialisation.

Initially scheduled for June 2020, the call timetable has been postponed due to Covid-related delays. An updated timetable, and a webinar recording to assist candidates with their application and share updates on the process, are available on the project website. 

An open call for virtual access to data sets and a free-of-charge training programme are also available through the project.
