Research: 
The objective of the MARINA project is to accomplish the resolution of marine related issues and problems following the responsible research and innovation principle, creating an all-inclusive Knowledge Sharing Platform, together with federating activities such as Mobilisation and Mutual Lerning workshops and exhibitions. The expected outcome of the Work Programme is a clear improvement of the integration of society in science and innovation.

The challenges and threats that marine resources and coastal waters face in Europe are multiple and they revolve around the following topics:

  1.  Marine environment (e.g. marine change caused by climate)
  2.  Energy supplies (offshore renewable energy: wave, wind, tidal)
  3.  Sustainable food production and food security (fishing and aquaculture)
  4.  Cleaner transportation (smart, green and integrated transport)
  5.  Safer environment (e.g. pollution caused by human land and sea pressures)
  6.  Sustainable tourism (in coastal cities)
  7.  Water supply
  8.  Resource extraction (e.g. deep sea mining including, bio prospecting) and carbon storage
  9.  Biotechnology
  10.  Biodiversity conservation

Such problems require collective actions amongst many diverse societal actors to ensure their sustainable use and the provisioning of ecosystem services.

The objective of this project is to accomplish the resolution of such marine issues and problems following the responsible research and innovation (RRI) principle. The “RRI principle describes a research and innovation process that takes into account effects and potential impacts on the environment and society”.

Moreover, “RRI implies that societal actors (researchers, citizens, policy makers, business, third sector organisations, etc.) work together during the whole research and innovation process in order to better align both the process and its outcomes with the values, needs and expectations of society”.

With this in mind, the Marina overall aim is to create an all-inclusive Knowledge Sharing Platform (KSP), together with federating activities such as Mobilisation and Mutual Lerning workshops and exhibitions, for catalysing and organising the convergence of already existing networks, communities, on-line platforms and services providing a socio-technical environment that facilitates and stimulates the direct engagement of all stakeholders for improving Responsible Research and Innovation in the marine field.

All project results and activities will be extrapolated from the RRI marine field to general RRI and broadly disseminated. The expected outcome of the Work Programme is a clear improvement of the integration of society in science and innovation.

Partners: 

MARINA is an EU-funded project integrated by 14 organisations and 8 associated partners.

The MARINA project partnership is made of experienced Research Institutions, Universities, Scientific Centres, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and NGOs distributed in Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey. Moreover, some of the partners are representative of networks on Marine issues and RRI communities, reinforcing the expected impacts from the project and viral effect in engagement, participation and delivering. The roles of partners are complementary. Participants are well integrated in their competencies and specific skills.

The Consortium consists of:
