MARIN Report 122: Better Ships, Blue Oceans!

In this Report we share our new MARIN strategy with you, because the next few years are essential for the future of the maritime sector and MARIN.

On one hand there is a recession due to the low oil prices and transportation rates, and on the other hand there is the challenge of clean (zero emission) transport over water. Sustainable use of the seas as a source of energy, food and raw material requires maritime knowledge and innovation. Floating mega islands may provide solutions as sea levels rise and cities become overpopulated. Increased computer power and a large amount of operational data provide opportunities for simulation and digitalisation.

In many ways we see a transition and MARIN wants to be leading as we undergo these transitions. That is why our new motto is: ‘Better Ships, Blue Oceans!’ They start 51° 58’16.1” N and 5° 39’ 16.7” E!
