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 first four MaRINET2 calls awarded €4.8 million in free testing access, delivering over 400 weeks of free-of-charge testing at the MaRINET2 network of facilities.

The fifth call for proposals runs from 1 September – 16 October and will fund test programmes in operation between 18 January – 17 July 2021. To find out if you’re eligible for support, contact us directly, or visit the MaRINET2 website,

The project is supported by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and builds on the original MaRINET project, which ran from 2011 until 2015.
