New Connections III - Exploring Ireland’s International Marine Research Partnerships

A Directory of Ireland’s International Marine Research Projects 2014-2016

 Over the past decade, more than 120 Irish marine research centres, marine-related SMEs and public bodies participated in almost 300 collaborative projects drawing down over €100 million in EU grant-aid.

Since 2014, 41 Irish marine research centres have successfully partnered in 77 marine-related projects worth over €400 million, bringing a minimum of €29.7 million in EU grant-aid to Ireland. This illustrates a very vibrant participation of Irish marine research institutes and knowledge-based SMEs in European co-funded programmes.
