UCC has assembled the largest and most significant marine energy research group in the world in IMERC. The University’s impact in this field has been driven by the success of three main research groups, including the Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre (HMRC), the Coastal and Marine Research Centre (CMRC), and the Sustainable Energy Research Group (SERG).
CIT has been the national hub for training master mariners in seamanship and navigation for over 30 years. In 2004, the CIT and INS engaged in a Public Private Partnership with Bovis Lend Lease, to establish the National Maritime College of Ireland to train candidates for the merchant and navy professions.
Abstract: IMERC promotes Ireland as a world-renowned research and development location, that will unlock Ireland's maritime and energy potential. IMERC aims to harness and integrate diverse research and industry expertise.
