The research partners within MaREI have each developed facilities to carry out state-of-the-art research in their respective sectors of the marine and energy field. By combining the distributed centres, MaREI will encourage multi-disciplinary interaction between centres, knowledge sharing and provide a clear access point for an extensive range of facilities for MRE research in Ireland. These facilities cater for the entire spectrum of Technology Readiness Levels (TRL), accommodating a wide range of prototype scales and specifications.
