Ifremer, Centrale Nantes and University Gustave Eiffel have worked for over twenty years on innovative projects in the field of marine structures, particularly on pivotal projects of European and international scope (MARINET, MERIFIC, SEAORBITER, IHES / GEPS Techno), including recently FLOATGEN, EOLINK and FORESEA, OCEAGEN, FONDEOLE...

The three institutions are also deeply involved, and often driving forces, in upstream research on the modelling (theoretical, numerical and experimental) of physical phenomena related to oceanography, marine biology and offshore systems engineering, e.g. Labex Sea

Their research teams are also innovative in the development of test facilities in order to adapt them to the needs of R&D and innovation: major developments of test tanks, deployment of the first offshore test site connected to the network for MRE, continuous data acquisition systems for environmental monitoring, new embeddable systems for the centrifuge, adaptation of the capacities of the cable fatigue test bench etc. With SEM-REV in particular, THeoREM is getting unique feedback on the regulatory and environmental context of the deployment of MREs.

As a result of their involvement in previous projects, Ifremer, Centrale Nantes and University Gustave Eiffel have built up a unique set of databases on the marine environment and the behaviour of offshore structures which can be used in the R&D projects supported by THeoREM: free access to certain data for "academic" research, conditional access for R&D and innovation projects with its private partners.
