Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION

Abstract

This is a brochure for the MARTEC project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). MARTEC focused on funding issues and planned to create a lasting network of key agencies that would improve the way in which maritime technologies research are managed and developed. This network would produce a strategy for future research funding, and should encourage the development of transnational programmes able to reflect the needs of the maritime industry.

MARTEC began by analysing national programme objectives and priorities before mapping management procedures and the way which different countries evaluate research proposals. Knowledge gaps were then identified in existing programmes. Furthermore, it developed a web-based communication and information portal for partners, industry and other stakeholders and finally, suggested ways of removing administrative barriers that could hinder the development of transnational research activities.
