European Technology and Innovation Platform for Ocean Energy
ETIP Ocean – The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Ocean Energy – is a hub for knowledge sharing and collaboration amongst stakeholders in the ocean energy sector. It is recognised by the European Commission as an advisory body to the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan and is funded through the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
ETIP Ocean hosts knowledge exchange events including workshops and expert-led webinars to provide space for a pan-European stakeholder discussion on the key challenges facing the sector. In doing so the project defines research and innovation priorities for the ocean energy sector and builds consensus for these solutions with the industry, and policy makers at EU and national level.
As a conclusion to the project, an integrated strategy for the sector will be published. It will detail a common vision and actions required to accelerated development of ocean energy on the path to commercialisation.
