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.
