Advisory Board


The committee or advisory board of an R&D project is a consulting body external to the project partners, made up of potential customers, experts or representatives of interest groups related to the project technologies, who are asked to analyse the progress of the project and provide their opinions and visions regarding its development.

The members of the KONFLOT Advisory Board are relevant stakeholders in offshore wind (HINE, NABLA WIND, NAUTILUS and SAITEC) and wave energy (IDOM). As members of the Advisory Board, these companies have committed themselves to:

  1. Review and provide comments and input on specific deliverables to be determined for the project.
  2. Participate in at least 2 individual online meetings (each of the committee members with the consortium) for the provision of feedback on specific shared documents.
  3. Attend in person the two dissemination workshops foreseen in the project.

To date, each Advisory Board member has had a first bilateral meeting with the project consortium. In these meetings, they have had the opportunity to share their feedback on the future evolution of KONFLOT by validating the technical progress and analysing the first results. The meetings that have taken place are the following:

  • Bilateral meeting with HINE → May 18, 2023
  • Bilateral meeting with NABLA WIND → June 8, 2023
  • Bilateral meeting with SAITEC → June 8, 2023
  • Bilateral meeting with NAUTILUS → June 22, 2023
  • Bilateral meeting with IDOM → July 27, 2023

The involvement of the Advisory Board in monitoring the progress of the project minimises risks and ensures that the results have a practical application in technology design.
