CoCoNet

CoCoNet

IH Cantabria and the University of Cantabria  are participating in COCONet,  a European project within the Seventh Framework Programme, which aims to promote the sustainable use of coastal areas in the Mediterranean and Black Sea for the production of offshore wind energy.

The project covers many countries, and involves researchers across many different topics, in order to achieve a holistic approach to environmental protection, with over 39 research centers and universities across Europe and the Black Sea and Mediterranean, including Egypt, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, France, Germany and Spain among others. Because of the importance of the project and the impact it can have for this innovative sector, the EU has allocated 9,000,000 euros.

As a part of the outreach program, we have produced a 30-min documentary film on CoCoNet, directed by Roberto Rinaldi. It features Marine Protected Areas, ecosystem functioning, and offshore wind farms, with beautiful and colorful footages of both the Mediterranean and Black Sea. Please take a look and show it for various outreach and dissemination activities.
