Portugal and the United Kingdom: Challenges and opportunities in the offshore renewable and aquaculture industry

4th of December 2018, Museu do Oriente, Lisbon, Portugal.

5th of December (morning), B2B sessions, Ambassador's residence.

 

WavEC Offshore Renewables organised its annual Seminar 2018 in collaboration with the British Embassy in Portugal. The event took place on the 4th of December in Museu do Oriente, Lisbon.

In this Seminar we presented major projects on offshore renewable energies and aquaculture and tried to understand the challenges, opportunities and lessons learned. We counted with Portuguese, British and European top speakers of the sector.

In the scope of the European funded project Oceanic, the WavEC Seminar explored how innovative techniques of surface protection can be applied to offshore infrastructures. 
 
We also discussed about the opportunities and challenges associated to the creation of the AIR Centre (Atlantic International Research Centre), a science, technology and business development network that bridge the north and south, east and west of the Atlantic.

Finally, we discussed about synergies between infrastructures and the Supply Chain in Portugal and the UK that enhance research, innovation and the development of new products and services.
