Mission

Our aim ...

is to promote the creation of a MarineKIC as a Knowledge and Innovation Community under the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

Our motivation ...

is the enormous growth potential in Europe's maritime economy, which rests on cutting-edge knowledge, skills and technologies.

Why a KIC? ...

The strength of Europe's maritime economy lies in the wealth of world-class expertise located in regions across Europe. Harnessing this diversity will allow Europe to take a leadership role in the sustainable development of marine resources, based on the best available knowledge and highest environmental standards. Only European-level public investment can kick-start this unique knowledge-based commercial enterprise.
