Event description
Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables 2020 (EIMR2020) is an international research conference.

About this Event

Led by the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), together with Heriot Watt University (HWU), this international conference series explores the environmental interactions of marine renewables.

It is held biennially at different sites across the Scottish Highlands and Islands region, and in 2020 the conference venue is the Corran Halls in Oban, Argyll and Bute.

There will also be a full day workshop on Monday 20th April titled “Environmental interactions of floating offshore wind”. This will be delivered at the same Corran Halls venue in Oban. There is a requirement to register to attend this workshop through the booking process, and there is a £10.00 registration fee to cover costs associated with the venue, lunch and refreshments. You can register for this event during the booking process.

There will also be a half day workshop on the morning of Friday 24th April titled “Collision risk to marine animals from tidal turbines – next steps towards understanding and retiring risk”. This will be delivered at the same Corran Halls venue in Oban. There is a requirement to register to attend this workshop, though there is no registration fee for this one. You can register for this event during the booking process.

The Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables (EIMR) conference 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 laboratories, universities, and government agencies.

EIMR2020 will focus on the environmental, societal, and policy aspects of wave, tidal stream, or tidal range energy, although lessons learned from offshore wind (floating and fixed) and other industries are welcomed. This year we will also provide space for emerging topics, including: multi-use platforms and co-location, community-scale marine renewable energy, and social licence to operate.

A student conference rate is offered. Bona fide students should state their study course or the research programme associated with their studentship on the registration form. Students must be studying full time to qualify for a discounted rate. You will be asked to show your student ID at the conference front desk as part of the venue registration.

Both conference rates include lunch and refreshments over the conference dates, and a conference dinner on the evening of 22nd April 2020. Delegates should indicate if they wish to take a vegetarian option for the conference dinner . Any other specific dietary requirements should be listed through the booking process. If delegates do not wish to join the conference dinner then they should contact the conference organisers directly at eimr2020@uhi.ac.uk to arrange an amended payment process and fee.
