John McIntyre Centre, Pollock Halls of Residence, 18 Holyrood Park Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5AY.
The SuperGen UK Centre for Marine Energy Research (UKCMER) has just entered its fifth year of operation and you are invited to participate in its fourth Annual Assembly. It is being held at the John McIntyre Centre, Pollock Halls of Residence, Edinburgh.
There will also be an opportunity for participants in the Assembly to visit the FloWave circular current and wave test tank at 1600 on Thursday 26th November.
Participants can register for the Assembly and the visit to FloWave here.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), as part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) Energy Programme, invites proposals for collaborative research projects to undertake fundamental research that will investigate novel concepts for marine energy development. Three priority remit areas were identified at a scoping workshop in October 2013 and have been further refined (in consultation with UK marine energy champions) to form the remit of this call:
- Wave and Tidal Array Modelling
- Novel Materials, Components and Sub-Systems
- Increasing Survivability and Reliability
As marine energy development is a truly global initiative, EPSRC would encourage proposals that aim to build new (or build on existing) collaborations with international academic researchers in wave and tidal energy. Please note the usual EPSRC funding restrictions apply for international researchers.
The call closes at 16:00 on 04 August 2015. Up to £3M is available for this call with EPSRC looking to fund four to five projects. The duration of the grant(s) may be up to three years. Projects that are successful must clearly identify how their research will complement UKCMER strategy and other UK investment in marine energy innovation.
Any applicant intending to submit a proposal to this call must register their intent by submitting an Expression of Interest via the form on the EPSRC call page, by 23:59 on Tuesday 16 June 2015.
The posters and presentations from the third SuperGen UKCMER Annual Assembly, held in November 2014, have been made available for download. This year, the assembly was hosted at The Macdonald Holyrood Hotel, Edinburgh.
