The EU-funded MaRINET2 project launched its Virtual Access Service today. The service provides researchers and technology developers with remote access to datasets gathered by offshore renewable energy research centres. It will help improve the standard of research across Europe in the offshore renewable energy area through improved access to data and research collaboration.
MaRINET2's Virtual Access Service will support ressearch and development activities by increasing the quality of data available for research and development activities. Remote, free-of-charge access will be granted via applications. Today, three research facilities are making databases available, with more to be developed and added over the course of the project. The databases available are:
- CENER - Windbench
- IFREMER - HOMERE
- NTNU - Skipheia Met Station
The Virtual Access Service will be explained in detail at a webinar on Thursday 7 December. You can register for this webinar here, and find more information about the project and the Virtual Access Service on the MaRINET2 website.
