In the middle of May 2013 the student organisation INORE (the International Network on Offshore Renewable Energy, inore.org) held its 7th Annual Symposium at the Adventure Park of Pembroke Dock (Wales, UK).
It was a week-long residential experience for 60 researchers involved in wave, offshore wind and tidal energies. We had visits to the harbour and to the fjord, collaborative tasks set up by industry members, poster presentations from all attendees, inspiring sessions with keynote speakers and top researchers, and non the least many social activities.
Julia Fernández Chozas organised a Changing the Game session with Symposium participants. About 60 researchers, with many different backgrounds and coming from all over the world played The Game. Various – challenging, inspiring as well as exciting – scenarios were proposed, and then discussed in an EU Parliament atmosphere. Overall, CtG inspired everyone to think on our current and future energy systems, and the actual possibilities to make a real change.
