The European Commission just announced that it will create a new Strategy for Offshore Renewable Energy in 2020.

The Commission will set a development pathway for the sector up until 2050 and announce a series of concrete actions.

This is a great opportunity for the sector to raise its profile, excite national governments, and secure additional European support for the next 5 years.

Join us to hear about the new Strategy, and to share your views on how it can help propel ocean energy to industrial roll-out!

The European Innovation Council

Please use the password OEEMEMBER0719-EIC to watch the video.

The European Innovation Council (EIC) is a new EU initiative, to provide direct funding to disruptive and breakthrough market-creating innovation. Ocean energy is most certainly disruptive and market-creating, so OEE wants the sector to get the maximum possible funding from EIC’s new opportunities.

There will be significant funding opportunities available – €2bn has been set aside for the EIC in 2019-2020, and a further €10bn is planned from 2021 onwards.

European Commission officials Dr. Matthijs Soede (DG RTD) and Walter Van de Velde (DG CONNECT) will present the EIC, highlight some of the upcoming calls, and take any questions the sector might have.
