Thank you to everyone who has submitted an abstract or ePoster for the EIMR2022 conference.
We received a wide range of exciting science and are working through the submissions now to shape the conference programme. We will soon issue an outline conference programme with detail on research theme sessions (together with related talks) and plenary sessions linked to the research themes.
You can follow us on Twitter @EIMR2022 to get conference updates and other related information.
Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables 2022
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 across the Scottish Highlands and Islands region. The conference series explores the interactions of marine renewable energy technologies with the environment.
EIMR2022 is to be held 4-6 October 2022 as a virtual meeting
The conference will be a virtual meeting in 2022 to encourage broader participation – particularly from more and new international contributors, reflecting the increasingly global nature and range of Marine Renewable initiatives, opportunities and impacts
The International Conference on the Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables (EIMR) is a major forum for researchers and professionals to come together to present their latest research, results, and ideas. EIMR aims to strengthen relationships between the emerging marine renewable energy industry, research centres, universities, government agencies and other stakeholders.
Previous conferences in Kirkwall, Orkney (2012 & 2018), Stornoway, Lewis (2014) and Online in 2020 explored the environmental, societal, and policy aspects of wave, tidal stream, tidal range energy, as well as some of the early lessons of offshore wind (floating and fixed), multi-use platforms and co-location, community scale marine renewable energy and social licence to operate.
EIMR2022 will continue to focus on emerging research in these areas, as well as new and emerging topics such as; engineering considerations for environmental interactions, social licence to operate, data transferability (from one site to another), balancing benefits in blue spaces (private interest v public rights).
The Scientific Advisory Committee is again chaired by Professor Ben Wilson of the University of the Highlands and Islands
