French American Innovation Day 2019 - Boston

, Share

The Office for Science & Technology of the French Consulate in Boston, Northeastern University, the University of Nantes and the Sea and Littoral Institute are organizing an international workshop on floating offshore wind energy technology on March 18th and 19th, 2019 in Boston.

The Office for Science & Technology of the French Consulate in Boston and the scientific committee composed of Prof. Jerry Hajjar and Prof. Andrew T. Myers from Northeastern University and Prof. Franck Schoefs from University of Nantes, are organizing the French American Innovation Day (FAID) - Floating Offshore Wind Energy Technology, on March 18th and 19th, 2019 in Boston.

This FAID2019 Boston aims to be the first of a series of international workshops on floating offshore wind energy technology (I-FOWT) with the generous support of many organisations (Make Our Planet Great Again, WEst Atlantic Marine Energy Community, Region of Pays de la Loire, Business France, Pôle Mer, MassCEC). It has been designed to share information on the innovation potential of floating technology and to discuss and identify the key issues that can lead to lower costs of energy and increased public acceptance.

These workshops are organizing around four themes:

  • Demonstrations of floating technology
  • Risk, regulation, and insurance of floating wind systems
  • Structural-geotechnical interaction of anchoring of floating systems
  • Legal, economic and technological issues for multi-use offshore development

We are very excited to host prominent researchers and industry leaders from both countries under the auspices of a Franco-American collaboration.
