MaRINET2, the Marine Renewables Infrastructure Network, is composed of 39 organisations who collaborate to progress offshore renewable energy technologies in Europe. It aims to accelerate the development of wave, tidal and offshore wind energy technologies and infrastructure by opening up access to 57 test facilities across 13 European countries.
The project is supported by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and builds on the original MaRINET project, which ran from 2011 until 2015.
The first two MaRINET2 calls provided €2.3m in funding for 67 R&D projects, delivering over 200 weeks of free-of-charge testing at the MaRINET2 network of facilities.
The third call for proposals runs from 1 November – 15 December 2018 and will fund test programmes in operation between 25 February – 13 August 2019.
