Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables 2020
Led by the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) with Heriot Watt University (HWU), Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables (EIMR) is an international conference hosted at different sites across the Scottish Highlands and Islands region. The conference series explores the interactions of marine renewable energy technologies with the environment.
The 2020 EIMR conference: Oban, 21-23 April 2020
The EIMR Scientific Advisory Committee has been monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and has made the hugely difficult decision to delay EIMR 2020.
This was not a decision taken lightly, especially given all the work that has gone in so far by so many, but the health and wellbeing of our tightknit but geographically distributed community has to be our first priority. Furthermore, the accelerating increase in travel restrictions are likely to impact attendance.
We will of course reimburse the delegate fee to those who have already registered, and hope to do it this week.
Given the excellent response to the abstract call and the exciting programme that emerged, we are still enthusiastic about the EIMR community and the need for these discussions. Accordingly, we are looking to reschedule EIMR in Oban at a similar date in 2021.
We are also exploring possible ways to use online forums through April/May 2020 to take forward some of the workshop events originally planned for the conference. Fuller details will follow in due course.
We hope you understand why we made this difficult decision and wish you well for the coming months.

We will be contacting all registered delegates personally over the coming days, so if you have already registered as a delegate please hold off making contact until you hear from the organising team.
