Free courses on offshore renewables with MaRINET2

MaREI co-ordinated project MaRINET2 has opened registrations for the first set of ten courses on offshore renewable energy to be delivered over the next three years.

The short, two-to-five days long, courses for industry and academic researchers in the offshore renewable energy sector are organized and lectured by MaRINET2 project partners and will focus on three areas: wave, wind, and tidal energy.

The topics covered include integrated tank testing, hydrodynamics of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine foundations, reliability and risk analysis of ORE technologies as well as test and verification processes from tanks to the sea.

The courses are aimed at early-stage researchers and postgraduate students, as well as industry and private sector participants. There is no registration fee, and travel & subsistence support is available to early-stage researchers and postgraduate students.

MaRINET2 is a €10.5m project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme and coordinated by MaREI. The project has been set up to accelerate the development of offshore renewable energy technologies by providing free-of-charge access to a network of 57 research facilities across Europe.
