Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics and provide an opportunity for delegates to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please, join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

The offshore wind supply chain includes, among its characteristics, the need for significant specialized infrastructure and means of transportation due to the size and nature of its main components. In order to enable efficient offshore wind sector development, there is a requirement for local industrial development in new and emerging markets. In this context, this article aims to propose a conceptual framework for the industrial development of the offshore wind supply chain in new markets using a process-based approach. A systematic literature review was conducted with the analysis of 102 publications concerning new path creation, offshore wind industry development, and synergies between the offshore wind supply chain and the existing onshore wind and offshore oil and gas sectors. The proposed framework comprises 4 phases: (1) identification of the need for a new sector, (2) sectorial and industrial planning, (3) industrial development and maturity, and (4) sectorial and industrial renewal or decline. Aside from the interaction among actors, networks, and institutions, which was considered a horizontal factor, influenced in all phases, the first phase considers the diagnosis of regional assets (natural, infrastructure, industrial, human, and institutional). The following phase contemplates the sectoral (targets, regulation, subsidy scheme, pilot project), and industrial (local content requirements, local government incentives, stakeholder's participation, investment attraction, R&D programs) planning. Phase 3 involves infrastructure adaptation, local labor force qualification and R&D&I programs, and supply chain development, including new companies formation, transplantation of foreign companies, and diversification and branching of local companies. Phase 4 proposes R&D&I programs, exportation strategies, and fomentation of other industries or planned deactivation. The model considers a systemic view of the industrial development process of the new sector and includes guidelines and policy implications, in each phase, contributing to the structuring and debate of public policies in new markets.
