Marine Energy Alliance opens first call for applications

The first Call for Applications of the Marine Energy Alliance (MEA) opened on December 17, 2018. The aim of MEA is to progress the technical and commercial maturity level of early-stage (TRL 3 – 4) marine energy technology companies with the overall goal of reducing the risk of device failure in subsequent demonstration phases.

Via MEA, selected marine energy technology companies will receive a suite of tailored expert services that will enable them to realize their ambitions and, more broadly, contribute to the coherent growth of the marine energy industry in general.

Through participation in MEA, companies will gain access to the project partners’ world-leading expertise in marine energy development.

Awarded companies will have the chance to work closely together with a transnational team of marine energy experts on both the technical advancement of their technology, as well as the development of their commercial strategy and business plans.

Each service offer is intended to put the company’s technology and business firmly on the road towards successful commercialization.

Timeline for the first Call for Applications

The first Call for Applications is open until Friday 15 February 2019 at 17:00 (CET). Access to the MEA service offering is awarded to companies via a two-stage application process. Stage 1 of the application process requests the applicant to submit an online Expression of Interest that can be submitted via the MEA project website.

Stage 2 involves a 30-minute remote (online) interaction involving a brief pitch (5 – 10 minutes) followed by a Q&A session conducted by representatives of MEA.

More information about the first Call for Applications and the application procedure can be found on the project website – www.nweurope.eu/mea. Successful Stage 2 applicants are invited to design a tailored Service Offer that will be implemented by the company and MEA in a joint effort.
