Resources for the ORE sector

    A national resource centre for the ORE sector

    RESCORE is the national resource centre dedicated to the French ORE sector. It takes the form of a web portal that provides centralised access to various useful information for players in the sector, such as environmental and physical data, reports, recommendations and bibliographies from France Energies Marines’ R&D projects.

    Access RESCORE

    Our service offer based on high added value expertise

    In order to sustain its development model, France Energies Marines also offers R&D services based on a detailed analysis of the market and adapted to the needs of the industry. It is structured around four areas: engineering and software development, studies and audits, instruments and performance, and representation and coordination.

    Sheets summarising the results of our collaborative R&D project

    At the end of each of the collaborative projects that we carry out, we prepare a fact sheet that includes the context, objectives, main achievements, output resources and a short conclusion on the work carried out.

    A collection of publications resulting from R&D work

    In 2018, France Energies Marines launched a publishing activity in order to bring together in a single collection books resulting from R&D work. Several recommendation reports, bibliographical summaries and teaching bulletins have already been published or are in the process of being published.
