MaRINET is a new network which aims to accelerate the development of marine renewable energy (wave, tidal & offshore-wind) by bringing together world-class testing facilities at all scales to offer EU-funded testing and to coordinate focussed R&D.
The network comprises 42 testing facilities from 28 research centres in 12 countries.Funding to the project under the umbrella of EU-FP7 is mainly aimed at removing financial barriers by enabling companies and research groups to access unique world-class European testing facilities outside their own country, which is generally not covered under national grant schemes.
The fifth call for free access to testing facilities will be open September 16th to October 31st 2013!
