9th May | National Events organised by Pillar III: Marine renewable energy and Pillar IV: Healthy ocean and resilient coasts of the Atlantic Action Plan
This in-person event will focus on discussing the EU perspective on the Sustainable Blue Economy and EU Maritime Energy Strategy. The Event will be a joint event between Pillar III and Pillar IV in order to understand the objectives of the Atlantic Action Plan and to better address the issues that MRE (Marine Renewable Energy) currently has when delivering sustainability and improving ocean health (EIA, etc). Moreover, a brainstorming session for potential project ideas on the subject of “The Future we want for Marine Renewable Energies in the Atlantic Area” will take place.
10th May | EU Brokerage Session Organised by DG MARE and the Atlantic Assistance Mechanism
The EU is a global leader in both mature technologies of offshore wind and emerging technologies of floating wind and ocean energy. Marine renewable energy will be an essential pillar of the EU blue economy, energy security and sustainable energy transition. S3 are a useful tool to support transition towards a sustainable blue economy by creating the necessary innovation ecosystems in Member States and Regions while promoting investments that boost the competitiveness of blue economy sectors.
DG MARE, in cooperation with the Atlantic sea basin strategy and its assistance mechanism, organises a dedicated brokerage session to inform stakeholders and promote the potentialities of S3 interregional partnerships, in particular in the framework of the I3 instrument and the currently open calls, specifically focusing offshore renewable energy (offshore wind and ocean energy).
