Our partner Agoria Renewable Energy Club and the innovation & technology platform GENERATIES are extending the scope of their activities to an emerging field of technology: Wave &Tidal technologies.

This newly developing sector boasts many innovation and R&D projects, but there are no fully industrialized projects yet.

Nonetheless, many major companies are investing quite heavily in these technologies. Some examples are Scottish Power Renewable, Siemens, Vattenfall, ABB, etc.

Please join us on Tuesday 8 November (14.00-19.00) for a full briefing by representatives of  industrial companies, the EU Commission and the University of Ghent.
