Marine Energy Alliance (MEA) 2nd Call for Applications is closing on Friday – February 14, 2020.
MEA aims 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.
Successful applicants passing the first stage are informed on the 2nd of March 2020 and will be sent a Request for Information in Stage 2.
During the first call 22 companies were awarded and MEA is very much looking forward to new companies joining the alliance.
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. MEA is a 4 year European Territorial Cooperation project running from May 2018 to May 2022.
The project has a total budget of €6 million and is supported by Interreg North West Europe, who provides €3.6 million of ERDF funding.
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.
