Summary Innovation is an engine of growth. Many countries are committed to the coming new marine renewable energy sector, (including offshore wind). How do we encourage innovation in this field? // How are the European 2020 commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and creating a new leading edge multi-disciplinary industry going to be financed? // Are we facing a new challenge to create an energy Europe with the coastal regions of the Atlantic, English Channel, the North Sea, and the Baltic? // The sector creates jobs, but how do we adapt and transfer knowledge and skills whilst also taking into account the impact of science on society? // Three mornings hosted by European speakers are reserved for exchanges so as better to know, understand, and facilitate the harmonisation of different standards and legislations : •25 June 2012: Research and Research & Development: policies and finance •26 June 2012: Land use planning •27 June 2012: Economics, employment, training and information // Three afternoons dedicated to groupworks, company and laboratory visits. // The 2012 Renewable Energy from the Sea symposium, chaired by Professor Michel Ricard, is aimed at interested individuals and industry professionals.
