ERA-NET MARitime TEChnologies II

Basic Information


There was little or no contact prior to its establishment. MARTEC quickly formed a strong network and has launched calls in 2008, 2009 and in 2010. MARTEC started with 12 partners and one observe in 2006. Given the success of the first phase, 30 ministries and funding organisations from 25 countries are now involved in MARTEC II. Although we now have experience of working across national borders, the programme management and project handling are still quite different. We need to iron out discrepancies, which can be achieved through the development of common procedures. To deepen and broaden co-operation in the field of maritime research, we need to develop more flexible procedures. There has been real advantage of working together so we need to pave the way for the establishment of long lasting systems. MARTEC II will move from a basic understanding of each others procedures and priorities to real information exchange.
