Consortia Building Workshop

In-Stream Tidal Energy: Advancing environmental monitoring, sensing, and instrumentation technologies in high flow marine environments

3pm, Wednesday, 5th November 2014

Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre (WTCC)

The Offshore Energy Research Association (OERA) and InnovateUK (formerly TSB) are collectively investing approximately $1.4 million CAD (approximately £755,000) in funding for this initial Call. Funding levels vary by jurisdiction and according to the type of partner organisation in a consortium; large organisations could attract up to 50% of project costs from the call fund, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) up to 60%, and research technology organisations (RTOs) and not-for-profit organisations up to 100%. Partners are expected to leverage the remaining portion of the project costs through ‘match-funding’ or contributions in-kind. Funding from OERA/TSB should not be relied on to cover the total project costs.

The workshop raised awareness amongst participants of the joint call, facilitated matchmaking between Canadian and British organisations with interest and expertise in tidal energy, and helped those who have already established a project grouping to find new potential partners.
