Partners have joined together to complete the preparatory work required to begin implementation of this pan-European Research Infrastructure for Offshore Renewable Energy.


Vision & Mission

The MARINERG-i Distributed Research Infrastructure (DRI) was successfully added as a project on the 2021 European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) roadmap. MARINERG-i will from an independent legal entity of distributed testing infrastructures, united to create an integrated centre for delivering Offshore Renewable Energy. By consolidating expertise, investment and access to infrastructures, the MARINERG-i Research Infrastructure will foster innovation across a variety of technologies and stages of development. As the only integrated Offshore Renewable Energy platform of this scale worldwide, it will be the epicentre of this developing industry.


  • Our vision is to ensure that MARINERG-i will accelerate the research, development and deployment of offshore wind, wave, tidal and combined energy technologies and maintain Europe as a global leader in this industry.
