MaRINET2 to host offshore renewables training
Two new free-of-charge training courses will take place in November as part of the MaRINET2 project's marine sector training programme.
The short, two to five-day courses are targeted at industry and academic researchers in the offshore renewable energy sector. They are offered free of charge and travel and subsistence support is available to MSc, PhD students and early-stage researchers.
Registration is now open for the short-course, “Hydrodynamics of fixed and floating Offshore Wind Turbine foundations,” which will be held from 20 to 22 November in Wageningen, The Netherlands.
The training will be hosted by the Maritime Research Institute (Marin) and Environmental Hydraulics Institute University of Cantabria (UC-IHC).
Meanwhile, The Technical University of Denmark will also deliver a course on “Remote sensing of offshore wind conditions” from 1 to 3 November in Roskilde. But applications are now closed for this training.
MaRINET2 project partners organise and deliver the training, which focus on three areas: Wave, wind and tidal energy. CRIACIV successfully held the first course in the series “Experimental modelling of wind actions and structural response” in Italy in June.
A full course timetable is available on the MaRINET2 website http://www.marinet2.eu/training/shortcourses/
MaRINET2 is a €10.5m project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, coordinated by the Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI) 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.
