On 8th January 2019 OCEANERA-NET COFUND opened its second Joint Call for collaborative research and development projects in the field of ocean energy. Feedback will be provided on Expressions of Interest submitted by 1st March 2019.

  • Flanders (Belgium)
  • Ireland
  • Pays de la Loire (France)

  • Spain
  • Sweden.

Partners form other areas may participate in projects but need to provide their own funding.

The call topics are: ocean energy devices; components and sub-systems; grid connection and power systems; materials and structures; installation, operations and maintenance; resource and impact assessment. Ocean energy covers wave, tidal, ocean thermal and salinity gradient but potential applicants should check guidance for eligibility in each region.

This match-making platform has been set up to bring together companies and research organisations to create partnerships to apply to the OCEANERA-NET COUND Joint Call 2019. This match-making facility is not linked to a specific physical event. Participants are invited to use it to make contacts and organise their own meetings, virtual or face to face.

However, a list of events and workshops across the OCEANERA-NET COUND partner countries is available on the OCEANERA-NET COFUND website and these may provide an opportunity to meet up with potential partners. The platform will remain open until the call deadline.

A Webinar will present the objectives of the call and explain the call processes, rules and support available to develop projects, and give an opportunity to ask questions.
