Research & Development
In order to maintain its level of services to the worldwide industry, MARIN continuously invests in research. MARIN is committed to ambitious research programmes whereof some are in-house or in co-operation with universities and others have the form of Joint Research Programmes with industrial partners. MARIN participates in numerous national and European projects. Moreover, MARIN closely co-operates with leading international oil companies and offshore engineering companies.

Services & Activities
MARIN research covers a large range of subjects related to hydrodynamics, nautical and maritime technology and offshore construction and installation work. The research is carried out within co-operative research projects together with e.g. universities, other ship hydrodynamic institutes and industrial partners. Research is also done within MARIN’s own ‘background research’ program.

Efficient and pragmatic planning and coordination of this extensive research field is crucial for ensuring both a high research level and applicability of the results in practice. This is the responsibility of the R&D Department, which supervises the research programs, initiates new projects and makes the plans for background research. The research coordinators of the R&D Department control and evaluate the realisation of the research work and provide technical advice to those carrying out the work.

Spreading of technology and dissemination of new R&D results is stimulated under responsibility of the R&D Department. Thereto, a substantial part of the research is being carried out in the Business Units that are also responsible for the customer services. This guarantees a close communication between research and application, between theory and practice.
