The new Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for Ocean Energy was launched on the 19th of June at 2 pm BST / 3 pm CEST, at the beginning of a joint OEE–IRENA webinar in the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week.
The SRIA is one of ETIP Ocean’s main publications as it gives guidance to policy- and decision-makers on the research and innovation areas that must be focused upon in the years ahead to best support the sector’s development. It is the result of a sector-wide consultation and contribution of the ETIP Ocean Steering Committee and Technology Working Group.
The SRIA was launched by Mr Patrick Child, the Deputy Director-General of DG Research & Innovation, European Commission.
The webinar focuses on new international developments, both in technology and support schemes, and examining the future of the global leadership role that Europe currently enjoys in ocean energy technology.
