The EU-funded H2020 marinerg-i project to develop an integrated infrastructure for the offshore wind, tidal and wave energy industries has been launched in Brussels.

The € 2 million H2020 marinerg-i project is coordinated by the MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy at University College Cork Ireland, 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. The project aims to develop both scientific and business plans addressing governance, legal, financial and strategic issues. It will also standardise best practice, improve efficiency, and create an e-infrastructure blueprint to facilitate remote access and enable an improvement in data management.
