Your chance to develop and demonstrate your innovative concept for offshore wind?

Flanders joins the European ERANET+ project call Demowind. OWI-Lab helps you with your application!

To support the further rollout of offshore wind energy, the sector is working hard on cost reduction. This impacts the whole value chain, ranging from wind turbines, offshore structures, grid connection, installation, to operations & maintenance. There is however an offshore wind innovation paradox: everyone wants cost reducing innovative concepts, but nobody is eager to integrate the associated extra risks and costs in their project. Six countries decided to try to solve this paradox, and to foster transnational cooperations. Flanders is one of the participating regions. 

You want to further develop and demonstrate an innovative concept for offshore wind? Then Demowind, the ERANET project call, is an excellent opportunity for you to receive funding and set up an international cooperation. What you need to do:

  1. You work out a project plan to develop and demonstrate your innovative concept
  2. For this, you establish cooperation with at least one industrial (independent) partner from the Netherlands, the UK, Denmark, Spain or Portugal.
  3. The deadline to submit your pre-proposal is 24 April.

OWI-Lab is happy to help you with the project plan, partner search or proposal writing if needed.

More information on this call can be found on the IWT website.
