Seize the Opportunity of Celtic Sea FLOW: Guidance for SMEs

The Cornwall FLOW Accelerator project is a collaborative project led by Celtic Sea Power, University of Exeter, University of Plymouth and Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. It aims to develop tools, knowledge and data which accelerate the Celtic Sea FLOW opportunity and lay significant groundwork with respect to developing pipeline at both a FLOW project and supply chain level. The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund. These webinars are held in conjunction with Marine-i and the Celtic Sea Cluster.


The webinar series will provide the latest overview of the Celtic Sea FLOW and provide practical advice to businesses seeking to enter this market. The event will be hosted online and, though primarily aimed at SMEs in Cornwall, will be of relevance to other UK supply-chain companies.
