MARINET – Free access to Europe’s marine energy R&D facilities

08.03.2013
The MARINET network is pleased to announce the opening of the third call offering free-of-charge access to Europe’s leading test facilities for marine renewable energy R&D.

This is a unique opportunity for engineers and researchers to avail of state-of-the-art interlinked infrastructures and associated expertise, courtesy of funding from the European Commission. Deadline: 27th March 2013.

These 45 marine energy R&D infrastructures cover the wave, tidal and offshore-wind fields and include facilities such as wave tanks (some with simultaneous wind capabilities), tidal flumes, wind tunnels, offshore test sites, electrical labs, corrosion labs, moorings labs, wind and wave test site data etc.

The lead applicant and majority of members of the visiting team must be based in EU Member States or States associated with the 7th Framework Programme. Team members based outside the EU can also participate as long as they are not the majority in the team. The team must apply for a facility located outside their home country. MARINET also provides a financial contribution to assist the team with travel and accommodation costs.

Typical projects might be:
a group of researchers from a number of universities teaming up to test the combined effect of wind and waves on a floating offshore wind energy platform at a unique large-scale wave tank facility
a start-up company teaming up with their local university to test the efficiency of a novel energy conversion system at a world-class electrical research facility abroad

a wave energy company who wishes to bring their technology to the next level by testing a scaled prototype at a protected coastal test site which is located outside their home country.

How to apply
Go to www.fp7-marinet.eu for further details and to make an application. Call closing date is 27th March 2013.

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
