17 ECONOMIC IMPACT MaREI coordinates the EntrepreneurShip Incubator at UCC, which provides business incubation space for industry to engage in a cluster containing research and training opportunities: Landing zone and Launchpad for spin in and spin out entrepreneurial activity Office Space & Workshop Shared Internet & Facilities Networking/Experience Exchange Support to Access Funds Mentoring EI funded MaREI Marine Incubation Manager to promote the EntrepreneurShip nationally

18 MARINET2 CASE STUDY ECONOMIC IMPACT Lir National Ocean Test Facility Lir NOTF has been operating since June 2016, and expects to be at full capacity by June The facility consists of test tanks for scaled wave and current testing, as well as electrical power take off and micro grid simulation capabilities Lir has benefited from national infrastructure grants awarded by SFI, SEAI and MI that has allowed the upgrading of facilities, such that they are on a par or better than other similar infrastructures worldwide Facilities are applicable to a wide range of sectors and users, including offshore renewable energy, maritime/naval architecture, coastal engineering and modelling, civil engineering etc.

19 INTERNATIONAL ENGAGEMENT IMPACT MARINET2 CASE STUDY MaRINET2 is a 10.5m project, funded by Horizon 2020 programme and coordinated by MaREI Provides support to technology developers of offshore wind, wave and tidal to test their devices in research facilities and in real sea conditions This support will accelerate the next generation of offshore renewable energy technologies towards the marketplace by providing technology testing at MaRINET2 s network of world leading testing facilities

20 INTERNATIONAL ENGAGEMENT IMPACT FEC CASE STUDY Headquartered in MaREI, Future Earth Coasts provides a platform for networking and explores the drivers and socialenvironmental impacts of global environmental change in coastal zones Hosting the International Project Office of Future Earth Coasts provides an opportunity to showcase the expertise and capacity within MaREI internationally through: Promoting sustainable technologies and providing a global example of best practice in integrated maritime development Creating the opportunity for young and mid career scientists to work with world class researchers globally in a cross and multi transdisciplinary way

21 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING Ecological surveys in Irish waters Marine mammals and seabirds Informing licensing and operation of key offshore industries (fisheries, renewable, oil & gas) Culloch et al. (2016) Mar Ecol Prog Ser, Anderwald et al. (2013) Endangered Species Research

22 Phase 1 System Design Phase 3 Sectoral Phase 2 Local Authorities Climate Ireland Operational 2017/2018 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT CLIMATE IRELAND PLATFORM Developed by MaREI researchers, Climate Ireland provides an online resource providing public, professional and practitioner audiences information on impacts of climate change at local/regional and national levels Climate Ireland has received funding from the DCCAE/EPA until the end of 2019 Ireland s first National Adaptation Framework was developed during 2017, and explicitly mentions MaREI and the fundamental role that the Climate Ireland Portal will have in supporting the delivery of plans

23 NAVIGATE PROJECT PUBLIC POLICY IMPACT Funded under the Ocean Law and Marine Governance Research Fellowship grant to a partnership project between the MaREI Centre and UCC School of Law. Funding amounts to 800,000 over four years Aims to support and enable efficient and effective governance of the Irish maritime area, exploring legal, economic and environmental consequences of Brexit Position papers will be produced which synthesise legal and governance perspectives to provide evidence based support to national policy makers, and will identify how national and sectoral strategies for marine resources can be climateproofed NAVIGATE will ascertain the legal and procedural barriers to the development of a thriving Blue Economy, including obstacles to development of key sectors, and is intended to strengthen national capacity in the area of marine law and ocean governance

24 SOCIETAL ENGAGEMENT IMPACT OCEAN LITERACY CASE STUDY Ocean Awareness: National Policy: Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth Founding member Irish Ocean Literacy Network, SeaFest & Cork Harbour Festival Marine Institute, Galway Atlantaquaria Resources: animations, competitions Marine Litter & Microplastics: MARLISCO educational resource pack, animation and EU fora on marine litter EPHEMARE microplastics outreach Links with JPI Oceans, EurOcean, CommOcean, Clean Coasts programme Impact: Increased awareness & ocean literacy Metrics: #people engaged, feedback, #views Learnings: opportunity to collaborate, curricula, community led initiatives, evaluation

25 SOCIETAL ENGAGEMENT IMPACT MaREI EPE STRATEGY TRANSDISCIPLINARY CITIZEN SCIENCE SFI Strategic Plan Agenda 2020 Excellence & Impact: One of the four key objectives is to have the most engaged & scientifically informed public SFI Science in Ireland Barometer 2015: Half the population feel uninformed about STEM 71% feel it is too specialised for them to understand 85% believe it s important to have a good understanding of science MaREI Education & Public Engagement : EPE activities to date have focussed on Education & Outreach Contributing to SFI s objective of increasing science capital Project specific stakeholder engagement not recorded as EPE OCEAN AWARENESS ANIMATION

26 Unlocking the potential of our marine and renewable energy resources through the power of research and innovation

27 What We Do

28 MaREI STRATEGY (RESEARCH CRITERIA) 1. Strategic National Importance: Clearly identified through national research prioritisation Aligned with EU research priorities 2. Research Expertise and Capacity: Focus is building national capacity onto existing national expertise MaREI participation is limited to world class Principal Investigators 3. Industry / Societal relevance and interest We respond to industry interest and pro actively target key industry partners MaREI is a research & innovation resource for industry to meet its potential Note: New Research Topics Must Meet All Criteria to be Considered by the CEMC
