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.

RECORDINGS & FILES: To view the recordings of online short courses, please scroll down to the course timetable  and click on the appropriate link in the last column.

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.

The courses will target a balanced mix of participants, in terms of institutions, country diversity, industry/research profile and gender. Ultimately, the order of registrations is also taken into account.

The criteria for selection of the participants will reflect this targeted balance. Selected participants will be revealed and contacted at least 1 month before the course.

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:
Rules for Travel and Subsistence financial support.
