Overall, a core focus of the OceanSET project is the completion of a total of three annual discovery exercises, with the objective of building up a detailed picture of the status of the ocean energy sector and its progress over the three years of the OceanSET project. The OceanSET project will build on the mapping exercise carried out in 2017 by the IWG to set an initial baseline and understand the Policy, Environmental, Technical and Financial activities that support the Ocean Sector in each Member State.
Under the Ocean SET project, the plan is to complete this mapping exercise of the Member States supports and activities each year for the duration of the project, to identify any gaps in the MS activities and to provide guidance for local programme development in line with the Implementation Plan. This particular work package is tasked with developing metrics to monitor the progress of the funded projects in the OE sector. The baseline mapping analysis carried sought a total figure for funding available within each Member State for the development of the sector.
This work package has sought to enable the Implementation Group to map data below that level and to seek metrics for each project funded at Member State, Agency and Developer level. The purpose of these metrics is to collect more granular data each year and to be able to compare, year on year the progress of projects and programmes in each Member State.

The plan for exploitation and dissemination of results (PEDR) of OceanSET is the reference framework for evaluating the impact of project activities. It corresponds to the deliverable D6.1 which is a public deliverable of the OceanSET project, produced in the context of WP6, Task 6.1. The objective of “WP 6 – Communication and dissemination” is to establish a strategy and implement an action plan for an optimised communication and dissemination of the project outputs, helping to ensure implementation of the SET Plan IP in the ocean energy sector. “Task 6.1 – Plan for exploitation and dissemination of results (PEDR)” aims to clearly explain the exploitation, dissemination and communication strategy of the project results by listing audience target groups, setting out main messages, determining the channels and tools that will be used and presenting concrete actions that will be carried out throughout the project and presenting how their effectiveness will be evaluated. The main intention of the OceanSET project being to collate and disseminate information and that this information be open source and available for public good use, there is no plan to exploit the project information other than in the sense of maximizing communication and dissemination actions to the benefit of the project goals.
