Abstract: 

Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewable Technologies (EIMR) is an international conference held at different sites across the Scottish Highlands and Islands region. It serves as a major forum for global researchers to come together to present their latest research, results and ideas; and to strengthen relations between the emerging marine renewables industry, research laboratories, and universities.

 

As part of this on-going work, EIMR hosted a series of parallel, one-day, invite-only workshops on the 22nd February 2016 at Victoria Quay, Marine Scotland, Edinburgh. The workshops aimed to bring together science and science stakeholders to explore critical questions for monitoring and mitigation around marine renewable energy (MRE) devices and arrays in three areas: biofouling, collision risk, and societal impact.

 

This particular workshop aimed to address a series of linked ecologically and industrially relevant questions around marine growth, or biofouling, on marine renewable energy devices. It focussed on first identifying key topics of relevance, which was followed by a prioritisation exercise aimed at elaborating next steps needed to address any knowledge gaps.

 

The aim of this report is to summarise the workshop activities and outputs for workshop attendees and a wider audience.
