First SRIA webinar on demo of wave energy devices

  • Research & Development

ETIP Ocean will publish a new Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) on 19 June this year.

The SRIA identifies six challenge areas, defined as R&I fields worth investing during the next period of five years.

Each area includes several priorities assessed according to the opportunity for the European sector and urgency to overcome them.

ETIP Ocean will hold a number of webinars to exchange on the priority topics and to prepare the sector for future funding calls.

During 2020, the webinars will focus on the first challenge area, “Design and Validation of Ocean Energy Devices”.

This first webinar addresses the demonstration of wave energy devices, with focus on the improvement of PTO and control systems.

The webinar will introduce the scope, actions and the expected impact of the priority topic.

Then, experts from ongoing R&I projects will present project findings to better understand the progress on PTOs for wave energy devices.

The webinar will take place on the 11th of June at 2 pm BST / 3 pm CEST.

ETIP Ocean is an advisory body to the European Commission, part of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan).

ETIP Ocean also brings together around 500 experts from 150 organisations covering the entire European ocean energy sector.
