TIDAL ENERGY targeted research interests – this intake

Research to improve animal detection in the top 15-metres of the water column in high flow environments; or
Product development that will reduce marine operations costs.
Research project ideas must be original research. Further, product or technology testing/adaptation from other ocean industries (e.g. defense, aquaculture, fisheries, oil and gas, etc.) for use in tidal energy development would also be of interest.
