H2020 marinerg-i project launched


March 15 in Brussels, the H2020 marinerg-i project was launched and this represents an important initiative that sets out to develop an integrated European infrastructure to facilitate future growth and development in the offshore renewable energy sector.

The H2020 marinerg-i project is coordinated by the MaREI Centre at University College Cork Ireland, has a budget of €2m and will run until June 2019. With 13 partners in 12 countries, (France, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark), marinerg-i brings together all European countries with significant testing capabilities in offshore renewable energy. MARIN is one of the participating parties.

The project aims to develop both scientific and business plans addressing governance, legal, financial and strategic issues which will facilitate its inclusion in a 2020 ESFRI roadmap application. It will also standardise best practice, improve efficiency, and create an e-infrastructure blueprint to facilitate remote access and enable a radical improvement in data management.

This project has received funding from the EU H2020 Infradev programme under
Grant Agreement No- 739550.
