Ocean Energy Stage Gate Metrics Validation Workshop

This report presents the results from a workshop held to validate a set of stage gate metrics for ocean energy technology development programmes. This workshop is the third in a series of workshops which form part of an ongoing collaboration in defining stage gate metrics. This was delivered by Wave Energy Scotland on behalf of and funded by the OCEANERA-NET.
