Instituto Superior Técnico is the school of Science, Technology and Engineering of the University of Lisbon and the largest engineering school in Portugal. Instituto Superior Técnico is member of EUREC since 2011 and part of EUREC Master since 2012. Instituto Superior Técnico has been involved for a long time in research and education activities in renewable energy. Ocean energy research is carried at the IDMEC, MARETEC and CENTEC research centres, in close connection with the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Wave Energy Centre, an independent association involving 11 companies, 2R&D institutions and IST. Wave energy has been subject of research for more than three decades, and recently tidal marine currents and offshore wind technologies also became a topic of research. Experience of staff in teaching ocean energy systems dates from 2004 in the Wavetrain (2004-08), Wavetrain2(2008-2012) and OceaNET (2013-2017) Marie Curie Research Training Networks and in specialized courses on wave energy organized by ASME International Petroleum Technology Institute (2009, 2010 and 2012).
