MaRINET2 has opened registration period for the first set of a total 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. They are free to attend, and travel & subsistence support is available to researchers and students.
MaRINET2 is a €10.5m project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, 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.
