Marine Research & Innovation Strategy - Public Consultation

A draft Marine Research & Innovation Strategy for the period 2016 - 2021, prepared by the Marine Institute, is available for public consultation until Friday, 30 December 2016.

The strategy has been developed following detailed review of marine research performance in Ireland, as well a review of the major policy and sectoral drivers. A key aim of the strategy is to provide a guide for government and funding agencies to where there are gaps in marine research to meet the needs of society as stated in national strategies such as Innovation 2020, the national research and innovation strategy.

The strategy aims to raise the research capacity across a number of identified themes and to ensure that funding is targeted to match requirements highlighted in state policies and sectoral plans. Dr Heffernan added, "There is a high degree of coordination in the State's approach to research funding, as we have seen through the national research prioritisation exercise and more recently the publication of Innovation 2020. We hope the Marine Research and Innovation Strategy will contribute to that coordinated approach by providing important insights to funding agencies as to how best to target their resources in the cross cutting area of marine research."

All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation.
