Grounding RRI practices in research performing organisations

GRRIP will embed sustainable RRI practices in 4 research performing organisations (RPO) and 1 dual function RPO and research funding organisation (RPO/RFO) (total 5 RPO&RFO) in the Marine and Maritime (M&M) sectors through Action Plans (AP) for institutional and cultural change. This will be accompanied by establishing a platform for engagement with the Quadruple Helix (QH) for each RPO&RFO, and a platform for mutual learning between the 5 RPO&RFOs and QHs. M&M is a high priority for the EU. However, the M&M is seriously exposed to the non RRI alignment between Research and Innovation (R&I), societal actors and the environment, affecting its performance and competitiveness. Objective 1: Co-develop, implement and evaluate self- tailored RRI APs to enable sustainable institutional and cultural change for the 5 M&M RPO&RFOs to embed RRI in their governance frameworks, structures and cultures. The APs will be based on a detailed audit of the RPO&RFO current RRI maturity level and the barriers identified. RRI dimensions will be incorporated into R&I. Objective 2: Establish structures to facilitate, promote and maximise real sustainable engagement with, and input from, the QH (industry, societal actors, policy and other RPO&RFOs). Objective 3: Establish indicators and methodology for impartial Monitoring, Reflection and Evaluation cycles, to ensure provision of evidence of societal, democratic, economic and scientific impacts of institutionalchanges. Objective 4: Develop a sustainable Mutual Learning process across the M&M RPO&RFOs both during the institutional and cultural change project and thereafter. Objective 5: Legacy: To enable more M&M RPO&RFOs to ground RRI practices through institutional and cultural changes by a) creating a practical user-friendly RRI AP framework template & guidelines, and b) launching a M&M RRI community. Objective 6: Examine how an RFO can positively influence and encourage an RPO towards RRI via its funding policy and interaction.

Desarrollo del proyecto e instalación del primer prototipo a escala real de la segunda generación de platafroma offshore flotante multiturbina

The main objective of this project consists of the design and development of the first real-scale prototype of the second generation of multi-turbine floating off-shore platform. This platform integrates multiple turbines and can be placed in any desired location thanks to an innovative mooring system. In addition, it will have dimensions significantly inferior to the first generation platform while maintaining all the advantages related to the orientation towards wind direction.

Fostering research excellence in EU Outermost Regions

The EU has nine Outermost Regions (ORs): Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Saint Martin, Réunion, Mayotte; the Canary Islands; and the Azores and Madeira. ORs are an integral part of EU territory but, as Article 349 TFEU recognizes, they differ from the rest of the EU due to their remoteness, their insularity, their small size, their adverse topographical and climatic conditions and their dependence on a limited number of local industries. ORs' participation in Horizon 2020 is inhibited by the fragmentation of the research community due to the geographic isolation but also lack of commitment of research institutions and missing connectivity with excellent partners in Europe and internationally beyond the traditional links with the European mainland of the same country.

Therefore, the potential for excellent research activities based on the above described assets remains largely unexploited. The overall objective of the FORWARD project is to improve ORs' excellence in research and their innovation potential to improve their participation in EU research and innovation funded projects and link research activities with territorial development. The project commits the regional governments from the nine ORs in charge of R&I regional policies together with key R&I actors from each region. FORWARD will perform an initial analysis of R&I ecosystems and, based on these results, it will put in place tailored actions including definition of joint strategy and thematic action plans, capacity building and networking activities, and approaches for connecting research and policy-making. Based on a multi-actor, multidisciplinary and cross-sectorial approach, the project will also support the collaboration and networking among representatives of the quadruple helix (university, industry, government and civil society) at regional level and with their counterparts from EU Members States and Third Countries.

Desarrollo e implementación de interrogador de redes de Bragg para monitorización en entornos marinos

In recent years, the rapid development of optical fiber technology has led to the emergence of many related applications. Within the field of sensor technology, fiber optic sensors are beginning to be competitive with traditional sensors thanks to the unique advantages they offer. Some of these advantages are the immunity against electromagnetic interference, its low weight and volume, the robustness against corrosion, the long useful life of this type of sensors and the capacity of multiplexing and of making measurements in long distances without needing to feed the sensors locally. Among the fiber optic sensors, the Bragg Networks (Fiber Bragg Gratting, FBG) allow the measurement of deformations, temperatures, pressures and vibrations among other parameters.

Therefore, the general objective of the SensorBragg project is the development of a Bragg network that can be used in marine environments. Specifically, the project will allow to acquire and store data from FBG sensors that can be interpreted as different physical magnitudes depending on the application.
