What is about?

The FLORES project is offering the course “Introduction to Offshore Renewable Energy” (Part 1) for free to the first 50 Spanish-speaking students who sign up for it.

The pilot course, available in Spanish and English, is part of the EU-funded FLORES project and aims to measure the experience and performance of the native language content compared to the English version.

* You may choose the course in English or in Spanish, but since we have reached already 50 users for the Spanish version, we encourage Spanish-speaking users to complete the English version, to help us assess the quality of materials and learning experience of the English course for non-native students.


This introductory course aims to make you familiar with the fundamentals of the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) sector. It introduces professionals to the complex landscape of marine energy, its promising future and possibilities, various innovative technologies, and the economical framework of the industry.

This is the first and only online onboarding course of its kind for the exciting and rapidly developing ORE sector. Participants get to deepdive into the depths of this intricate market. Not only bringing them up to speed, but placing them ahead of the curve. Job ready.

A pilot action framed in the FLORES project

Measure the enhanced performance of existing online courses by translating them into Spanish.

The pilot targets FLORES partners and their networks, conducting a baseline assessment with the English course version (Course 1 = Introduction to Offshore Renewable Energy, duration of self-study = 3 hours).

Existing training materials are translated into Spanish for a two-stage pilot. Performance metrics, including completion rates, speed, and scores, will be compared between the English and Spanish versions.

Increasing the availability of high-quality content in native (Spanish)  language, fostering better understanding on Offshore Renewables and thus accelerating the energy transition.

Educational content aimed at accelerating the energy transition.

Using high-quality online training content, developed and reviewed by experts from the sector, made available anywhere, anytime for anyone.

Initial pilot with current FLORES partners and their networks, followed by targeted deployment in Spanish-speaking regions, including Spanish universities and Latin American countries, with a focus on Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico, thanks to existing contacts via the PAMEC network and CEMIE-OCEANO.

Anyone from students upward, including young professionals, teachers, and experts, with a minimum recommended age of 18.

  • Initial pilot (=Baseline): Current FLORES partners and networks. Target Value: 50 users, of which at least 10 Spanish native speakers with sufficient command of English to complete the course;
  • Second stage (Spanish): target at only Spanish-speaking regions. Target value: 50
