Cantabria Coastal and Ocean Basin

MaRINET2 Training Programme

What is it?

The MaRINET2 Training Programme is an instrument to raise awareness of and engage with industry and the community of up-and-coming researchers that will be the work force and sustain the future of the ocean renewable energy sector.

The training aims to develop specific technical skills in addition to the development of essential generic and transferable skills relevant for ORE to both academia and industry through the setting up and running of a short-course and webinar programme with a strong hands-on component.



The short-courses will cover a wide range of topics strongly grounded on the consortium’s expertise in the scope of MaRINET2 infrastructures. Topics to be covered include:

  • Integrated tank testing;
  • Hydrodynamics of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine foundations;
  • Reliability and risk analysis of ORE technologies;
  • Test and verification processes from tanks to the sea.

Information regarding the programme, location and duration of the short-courses will be uploaded to this webpage, where applicants will be able to submit applications.

The courses are free of charge, targeting a balanced mix of participants in terms of institutions, country diversity, industry/research profile, and gender. Priority will be given to participants from outside the MaRINET2 consortium.

Although early-stage researchers and postgraduate students are particularly targeted, the participation of interested applicants from industry, private sector companies, research groups, educational institutions, etc., will be strongly encouraged.

A significant part of the short-course programme will be dedicated to helping technology developers improve their knowledge on how to perform concept validation at very-low TRL and develop a sound TRL growth strategy.

Travel and subsistence (T&S) financial support will be offered to early-stage researchers and postgraduate students to attend the courses. The rules can be found in the following link:
