PLOCAN organises the wokshop “Offshore aquaculture synergies with marine renewable energies”

By March 22, 2021 News

The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN), in collaboration with the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society (ACIISI) organize a workshop within the scope of two EU-funded projects: “MUSICA – Multiple-use-of Space for Island Clean Autonomy” and “Forward-Fostering Research Excellence in EU Outermost Regions“. On the one hand, the MUSICA project will provide a full suite of Blue Growth solutions for a small island including three forms of renewable energy (RE): wind, Photovoltaic (PV) and wave, innovative energy storage systems on the MUP, smart energy system for the island, desalinated water and green support services for island’s aquaculture. On the other hand, the Forward project intends to improve ORs’ excellence in research and innovation potential, supporting their participation in such EU-funded projects and helping to connect research activities with development in these areas. The project will analyse research and innovation ecosystems and, relying on the results, will implement tailored actions.

This workshop will be held on March 24th, from 09.30 a.m. to 14.00 p.m. UTC (Canary Time) and will count on key agents of the value chain (industry, academia, regulation and community), with the aim of analyzing synergies and opportunities to combine offshore aquaculture with different forms of marine renewable energies.

When: 24th March 2021. From 09.30 a.m. to 14.00 p.m. UTC (Canary islands local time).
