The OCEANERA-NET project invites the ocean energy community to attend its two day Final Conference.

‘Breaking Through’ is the Final Conference of the OCEANERA-NET project which, with the support of the European Union through Framework Programme 7, has supported collaboration and innovation in ocean energy through 2 joint calls and a range of events and activities

We have curated an exciting, interactive, innovative and informative programme of events of two days to celebrate the successes of the OCEANERA-NET project and to discuss the way ahead in the ocean energy sector.

Throughout the Conference, activities, discussions and presentations will focus around 3 key themes:
How do we address sector challenges and successfully scale up ocean energy technology and businesses?
How are businesses, funding bodies and research organisations approaching these challenges?
What messages do we want to give to the outside world?


Hear from expert speakers reviewing future sector opportunities.
Gain insight from keynote industry speakers from the Ocean Energy and other sectors.
EU Policy perspectives from the European Commission.
Contribute to a panel discussion – ‘WHAT NEXT?’ – how does the sector move forward?

How does the ocean energy sector breakthrough? Join a facilitated open innovation-style workshop where YOU set the Agenda / YOU discuss/ YOU decide. The Unconference principle is one where topics are generated by participants, and breakout groups are formed based on interest and relevance. Here is a recent example: British Water. Unconference 2017
