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 now in its second iteration, and it is supported by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.
The first MaRINET2 call provided €1.3m in funding for 48 R&D projects. This will provide 95 weeks of testing free-of-charge at the MaRINET2’s network of facilities.

The second call for proposals opens on 15 January 2018. To find out if you’re eligible for support, visit the MaRINET2 website.

MARIN has a main focus on Renewables and is participating in MaRINET2. In MaRINET2 MARIN offers several facilities for hydrodynamic research.

Offshore Basin
Shallow Water Basin
Concept Basin
