UK-US Offshore Wind Collaborative R&D Competition

Closing Date: 10/01/2024

UK registered organisations can access funding for offshore wind R&D projects throughout the USA, with UK projects working in collaboration with separately funded US projects.

This competition is jointly operated by Innovate UK (IUK) and National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium, (NOWRDC). The funding from IUK is for UK projects only.

The aim of the competition is to reduce the cost and risk of offshore wind development projects throughout the US. The competition will fund UK projects collaborating with US projects.

Each project’s scope must address one or more of the challenge areas for this competition:

  • Challenge 1: Solutions to facilitate offshore wind resiliency and transmission coordination
  • Challenge 2: Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Systems Development
  • Challenge 3: Innovation to facilitate ocean area coexistence

UK-US collaboration must be significant and meaningful, with UK projects demonstrating integration with the US projects.
