CAREMAR focuses on the mechanisms employed within European universities to deliver innovative high quality Research and Technological Development (RTD) and Research Based Education (RBE) in marine technology and related sciences, and the development of communications and collaborations between Universities and Industry. CAREMAR will help the academic sector to support the needs of industry in both the short term and the medium to long term and to deliver solutions through mobilising the skills and resources of the entire marine technology academic community. In this respect, CAREMAR attempts to bring academia and industry together at a fundamental and strategic level rather than in a specific technological area, so that strategic planning and processes can be examined in a highly original way to ensure that outputs from academia are clearly aligned to industry needs across a broad spectrum of technological areas.
The CAREMAR project arose from the recognition that whilst there was tremendous latent research potential amongst WEGMT Associates that this had been largely untapped due to a lack of initiatives aimed at harnessing this potential. As a result a need as identified to:
In addressing these needs, there will be a series of intended outputs from CAREMAR:
