The next few years are essential for the future of the maritime sector and MARIN. We are facing the challenge of clean (zero emission) transport over water. The drive for 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.
