Project "REMCap"


RemCAP: Resource Efficient Maritime Capacity.

Global maritime market growth, driven by rising demand for marine/offshore renewable energy, fish products and emerging potential for 'blue biotech' products, creates a high demand for efficient use and management of the ocean resource.

REMCap brings together six European marine 'regional research driven clusters' to increase innovation capacity in maritime resource efficiency to underpin successful exploitation of these growth opportunities.

The European project that will focus on innovation capacity for a resource efficient maritime Europe, targeting the whole-life efficiency of the marine extractive industries (fisheries & aquaculture, seabed aggregates and renewable energy).

A particular emphasis is on advancing Europe's capabilities in marine operational efficiency, since this has a major impact on whole-life resource efficiency, and also offers large potential for diversification into different markets.

The global maritime market is on a strong growth trajectory, and this project aims to harness that growth opportunity to create economic and employment benefits for Europe. On the one hand, growth is driven by commercial megatrends such as demand for marine/offshore renewable energy, fish products and emerging potential for 'blue biotech' products; on the other hand, there is high demand for efficient use and management of the ocean resource, as described in the EU Integrated Maritime Strategy.

Project duration: 36 months (01.11.2011- 31.10.2015).

Lead Partner - Marine South East (United Kingdom).

Project partners: Klaipeda Science and Technology Park and other partners from 7 European countries.

Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

We have carried out a number of successful joint projects with KSTP. It is not only a reliable partner but also an institution contributing to creation of new jobs. For Lithuania currently it is an issue of topical relevance, therefore, the Park helping the youth to enter the labour market contributes to strengthening of the national economy. I wish that the cooperation between the Park and business were even closer.

I can firmly state that KSTP is an institution where the ideas are generated not for remaining on paper or deep in a drawer. They are effectively implemented, there is always a look to the future, and a further road is foreseen to ideas. This is a feature of a solid and responsible institution. As a resident of Klaipėda, not indifferent to the present and, even more to the future, I wish that KSTP as it was, so it also would be one of the most active, dynamic and creative economy engines not only at national level but also at wider spaces.
