The aim of OCEANERA-NET is to support coordination and cooperation of national/regional research funding programmes in ocean energy.
The aim of this second Joint Call is to promote the development and competitiveness of the ocean energy sector by supporting projects involving research, technology, development and innovation (RTDI) activities, developing, demonstrating or validating new and innovative technologies of ocean energies: Wave

Energy, Tidal Energy, Tidal and Ocean Currents, Salinity Gradient and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion.

The scope is needs-driven research addressing a technology area, as indicated above, and in addition, projects may address environmental and financial / legal issues. We will support transnational consortia with a minimum of two independent eligible organisations from at least 2 countries participating in the call. Balanced consortia with high added value of transnational collaboration and SMEs or large industry involvement are encouraged. Detailed information on call topics and eligibility criteria is provided in the Call Text.

Organisations from other countries can also participate, as long as they guarantee their own funding. Eligible applicants, budget limits, financial rates and eligible activities vary between countries/ Funding Organisations: potential applicants must check national rules and contact their respective Funding Organisation prior to submitting an applications. Funding will be granted for a maximum of three years.
The application process is centralized, through the Joint Call Secretariat and OECEANERA-NET website and Electronic Submission and Evaluation System. It follows a two-stage submission process, consisting of a first Pre-proposal stage (for eligibility check) and a second Full Proposal stage (entailing both eligibility check and international evaluation by independent experts). Common evaluation criteria have been agreed. Projects are expected to ensure excellence, novelty, impact and high quality of implementation.
