Eigen activiteit

The goal of this seminar is to strengthen the supply chain for blue energy in Europe and to explore opportunities in growth markets around the world, with focus on wave, tidal and floating wind energy. International and local speakers will highlight the state of the art and demonstrate ways to overcome specific challenges of blue energy, by focusing on small scale applications, integration in multi-use platforms and technical standards. We also offer the possibility to network with key players from the Belgian offshore energy scene, facilitated by the opportunity of the Ocean Energy ERA-Net call.
