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.
Five projects granted after the fifth and last call for Trans-National Access (TNA) proposals are now underway at CNR-INSEAN facilities.
