France: Ifremer Offers Free Access to Its Testing Facilities

MARINET (Marine Renewables Infrastructure Network) is a European Commission (FP7 programme) funded initiative which aims at accelerating the development of marine renewable energy technology by bringing together a network of 42 marine research facilities in countries all over Europe, including Ifremer facilities, to offer periods of marine renewable energy testing at no cost to applicants through European Commission funding.

Ifremer, coordinator of the Marinet Trans-National Access, offers through this programme access at no cost to its testing facilities for hydrodynamics (Brest Wave tank and Boulogne sur Mer wave/current flume) and for materials in marine environment (Brest material testing facilities) for research groups and industries developing new technologies for marine energy converters.

Ifremer, through its research work and expert advice, contributes to knowledge of the oceans and their resources, to monitoring of marine and coastal environments and to the sustainable development of marine activities. To these ends, Ifremer conceives and operates tools for observation, experimentation and monitoring, and manage the oceanographic databases.
