WORK ON THE WAY FORWARD
The final point on the agenda of Innovation Friday will be the way forward. Together, we will make an inventory of the actions that are required for your innovation to succeed and identify possible partners and funding schemes. MARIN has a large network in the industry, academia, research institutes and government. When the next steps do not directly require the expertise of MARIN, we will naturally advise you that it is not necessary to use our paid services. Our experts will objectively support you to map out a plan, which might or might not involve MARIN.
MARIN has more than 90 years of experience in maritime research, covering all fields such as resistance and propulsion of ships; seakeeping and manoeuvring; offshore operations, (renewable) energy production and installation. As an independent research institute we are a non-profit foundation. We are not looking for a commercial stake in your innovation, nor do we have any stakes in the innovations of your competitors. MARIN is an independent, objective sparring partner. You don’t need to worry about a possible conflict of interest. Your intellectual property stays yours, and we will treat your innovation confidentially.
