Eileen will talk on Innovate, Collaborate, Generate – A Pathway to Commercialisation for New Technologies.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), based in Orkney, is the world’s leading research and test centre for marine renewable energy – testing new machines that generate electricity from waves and tide.
Eileen joined EMEC in August 2009 as Client Relationship and Marketing Manager. She is the first point of contact for prospective clients and works with them from initial contact through to arrival on site. In her time at EMEC, she has worked with 18 different wave and tidal technology companies from 9 different countries.
Eileen is also responsible for managing EMEC's marketing, public relations and media activities. The Centre has become a global focal point for the emerging marine renewables industry as Orkney has become home to some of the most innovative marine energy technologies currently in development.
