Ireland recognised as International Leader in Marine Technology by The Maritime Alliance

The Marine Institute and IMERC have been presented with the International Maritime Partner award by The Maritime Alliance (TMA) at the annual Blue Tech & Blue Economy Summit in San Diego on Wednesday, 9th November. The Marine Institute and IMERC were selected for this international award for their work in developing Ireland's marine technology cluster.

In addition to receiving the award, Dr Edel O'Connor gave a keynote address on Ireland's national ocean economy strategy at the Summit. The five-day event brought together over 400 professionals, investors, educators, and government officials to collaborate on issues, engage in key topics and develop partnerships that promote BlueTech jobs.

Speaking about the award, Dr Peter Heffernan, CEO of the Marine Institute said: "Ireland has been gaining a reputation in Europe, and internationally for its marine research and innovation, and for driving collaboration in this area. This award by The Maritime Alliance shows the high regard for the work we are doing in Ireland with our colleagues at IMERC to bring together marine innovators and create an environment that promotes collaboration to develop BlueTech solutions for a global market."
