The annual Partnership for Research in Marine Renewable Energy (PRIMaRE) conference provides a forum for exchanging the latest research and development, and fostering collaborations on marine renewable energy.
The conference covers a wide range of topics, including: technology, policy, environment, hydrodynamics, resource characterisation, materials, operations and management. It is an opportunity for the PRIMaRE network to showcase the research conducted among the different partner institutions, their industrial collaborators and the wider academic sector.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions this year's conference will be held online, run by Bangor University. The organisers hold to build on last year's hugely successful online conference when over 210 delegates from all over the world attended the event.
The conference includes universities, industry and research centres active in all aspects of marine renewable energy and is expected to attract over 100 participants ranging from industrial developers, university researchers, marine environmentalists and policy makers.
