After the success of the first courses delivered by the MaRINET2 project consortium, the international project continues to roll out its training program in the offshore renewable energy sector.
In collaboration with MaRINET2, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), WavEC Offshore Renewables and the Marine Engineering Institute – Italian National Research Council (CNR-INM), is organizing a course entitled “Methods and environmental data collection in Marine Renewable Energy sites”. The short course will take place ONLINE, on July 30th and September 3rd, 2021.
The short, two to five days long, courses are targeted for industry and academic researchers in the offshore renewable energy sector. Courses 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.
Information on the program, is available on the MaRINET2 website, which will be updated whenever there are new details.

MaRINET2 is a €10.5m project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program, and coordinated by the MaREI (Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland) Centre in University College Cork. 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.
