The OCEANERA-NET COFUND project was launched on 25th January 2017 and is planning to launch a cofunded joint call in March.

The Project

A five year program (2017-2021) which will support transnational, collaborative research and demonstration in the field of ocean energy. It involves 8 different countries and is co-financed by the European Union under Horizon 2020.

The Joint Call

Funded by participating countries and regions and the European Union to support transnational projects demonstrating and validating ocean energy technologies:

  • Wave energy
  • Tidal energy
  • Tidal range
  • Salinity gradient
  • Ocean thermal energy conversion

* Since all countries regions cannot support all technologies, focus will be on wave and tidal stream.

The Joint Call will open on March 20th.
