Marine-i provides leadership and a focal point to galvanise and support business-led and market-driven Research, Development and Innovation. (RD&I).

In Spring 2020, Marine-i launched its exciting new programme. This builds on the success of the initial Marine-i programme, which ran from 2017 – end of 2019. The current programme (which runs until the end of 2022) takes Marine-i to the next level and has a fresh emphasis

The current programme is focussed on accelerating development of innovative product ideas, working closely with businesses to take their products to the next stage of commercialisation.

The world class RD&I expertise, outstanding test facilities and the support available through Marine-i has already enabled many exciting new product developments, opening global market opportunities for Cornish businesses. We are now building further on this success

Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Marine-i brings you the most comprehensive range of support ever offered to marine technology businesses in Cornwall.

We can help your business grow by providing grant funding, business assistance, academic research, test facilities, subsidised graduate placement and more.
