WavEC Seminar 2015 – 16th November 2015, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon.

This year WavEC Offshore Renewables will organise its Annual Seminar in partnership with the French Embassy, Institut Français, Portuguese-French Chamber of Industry and Commerce and Business France. The model of success of previous seminars organised with the Embassy of the EUA, The Netherlands and Norway will be maintained.

The Seminar entitled "Portugal and France: A driving force on research and innovation in Marine Renewable Energies" will take place on the 16th of November 2015 at the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, in Lisbon and counts with the high patronage of the President of the Republic.

With the presence of French, Portuguese and European top experts of the sector, the event will discuss the following issues:
 - State of the Art in Portugal and France
 - WavEC's Competences and National and International Partnerships
 - Actual Industrial and Technological Capabilities and Future Prospects
 - European, French and Portuguese Vision and Development Support to the Sector

The Seminar will focus on the Portuguese supply chain that has obtained know-how through the development of several marine renewable energy (MRE) projects.

The success scenarios of projects as the Waveroller, with studies and tests done in Portugal and France and the Windfloat, contributed strongly to the internationalization of EDP in the MRE and A. Silva Matos in the offshore metalworking sector and stimulated Portuguese shipyards to invest specifically in the sector in line with other European countries. In addition to that, French shipyards are experiencing positive impacts with the implementation of MRE.

The visions of the European Commission, France and Portugal (both from the public and private sector) and the actions planned to start in order to stimulate the sector, as well as the multidisciplinary activities of WavEC will also be highlighted in this Seminar.

Registration will be done online on the following platform: http://wavec.geostar.pt
