The Ireland Wales 2014-2020 European Territorial Co-operation (ETC) programme is a maritime programme connecting organisations, businesses and communities on the West coast of Wales with the South-East coast of Ireland.

The Welsh Government manages the programme with partners, the Southern Regional Assembly (SRA) and the Department for Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER).

The programme is one of a family of ETC programmes which provide opportunities for regions in the EU to work together to address common economic, environmental and social challenges. 

The Ireland Wales programme focuses on seeking solutions to shared challenges on both sides of the Irish sea, to improve the economic and sustainable development priorities of Wales and Ireland.

The programme focuses on:

  • Cross border innovation
  • Adaptation of the Irish Sea and Coastal Communities to Climate Change
  • Cultural and Natural Resources and Heritage

 

The Selkie project is part funded by the Irish Wales Co-operation Programme and aims to develop shared multi-use engineering tools, templates, standards and models, which can be used across the Marine Renewal Energy sector in both Wales and Ireland.

They will do this by:

  1. Establishing a cross-border network of Ocean Energy SMEs and supply chain companies;
  2. Conducting industry-academic collaborative R&D projects;
  3. Transferring R&D knowledge to wave and tidal industry/SME stakeholders, thereby advancing the technology sector as whole;
  4. Assisting Irish and Welsh SMEs to progress along the path to commercialisation.
