Seminar 2017

Testing and Demonstration Infrastructures for the Development of the Blue Economy

WavEC Offshore Renewables organised its annual Seminar 2017 that took place in the morning of the 12th of December at Gare Marítima Rocha Conde de Óbidos, in Lisbon. In the afternoon B2B meetings took place.

 

The event of this year discussed about the importance of testing and demonstration infrastructures - both onshore and offshore - to attract projects to Portugal and through them develop a national value chain, including R&D&I components, services and industry. The discussion of this topic is particularly important and necessary due to the preparation of an application to the ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) to create a distributed infrastructure for the marine renewable energy sector. The infrastructures that are integrated into the ESFRI project will have access to more attractive conditions to raise R&D&I projects.
