36 month project (2020-2023)
VALID is designed to develop a Hybrid Testing Platform for accelerated testing with methodologies by combining the virtual and physical environment reducing cost in the product developing process, tackle scaling challenges and lower uncertainties once fully demonstrated in the ocean.
VALID will use and adapt novel Hybrid Testing methodologies frequently used in the automotive industry through three different case studies that are specific to the ocean energy sector. This will transform the fundamental approach to accelerated testing and establish the correlation between the ocean and the lab conditions allowing for common testing procedures and convergence in technology across Europe.
