Our Collaborations


Marine-i, a collaboration between the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, The Cornwall College Group, Cornwall Marine Network, Cornwall Development Company and ORE Catapult brings together key infrastructure and expertise to enable the generation of new innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly’s marine sector, which has been identified as an area of high growth potential. Up to £6.8m of European Regional Development Funding (ERDF) has been secured as part of the £9.3m programme to develop marine technology research, development and innovation activities in the area

Marine-i focuses on four interconnected themes: marine energy, marine manufacturing, maritime operations and marine environmental technologies, to stimulate and support business-led and market-driven research and development and innovation to drive productivity and the exploitation of new market opportunities. Marine-also forms part of the Marine Hub Cornwall sector collaboration, which aims to showcase Cornwall as a world-class centre for marine renewables technology.

The Marine-i team includes innovation managers and business research fellows from the partners who provide direct technology and innovation support to SMEs and act as the conduit to access the wide range of specialist services and facilities that are available within the project. At the heart of the Marine-i is a £3.18m Marine Challenge Fund offering a range of grants from £5K to £150K – a delegated scheme that has been specifically designed to drive marine sector research, development and innovation.
