European Territorial Cooperation project MEA – Marine Energy Alliance
We are so proud of our achievement and the possibility of getting support from the EU for the development of our idea.
The MEA aims to progress the technical and commercial maturity level of early-stage (TRL 3 – 4) marine energy technology companies with the overall goal of reducing the risk of device failure in subsequent demonstration phases.
The HelioRec will receive a suite of tailored expert services that will enable us to realise our ambitions and, more broadly, contribute to the coherent growth of the marine energy industry in general.
MEA is a four year European Territorial Cooperation project running from May 2018 to May 2022. The project has a total budget of €6 million and is supported by Interreg North West Europe, who provides €3.6 million of ERDF funding.
The MEA consortium includes the Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC), European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy (MaREI), Ecole Centrale de Nantes, Exceedence, INNOSEA, Maritime Research Institute Netherlands, the University of Edinburgh, and communications partner Navingo.
Thank you for this opportunity!
