Funding:Programme;European Space Agency Earth Observation Envelope Programme. Funding amount €300k
Timeline:Start; March 2016. Duration; 1 year
Coordinator:MaREI, University College Cork.
HALPIN Team:Project Manager & lead researcher; Paul Shanahan
Overview:At present, the use of Earth Observation (EO) and space technology in our maritime sector is limited. European member states have heavily invested in the Copernicus programme and the new Sentinel satellite systems. This represents a wealth of business opportunities in knowledge, technology and data. However, innovators need support and guidance on how best to seize these opportunities. CINMarS represents a €300,000 investment by the European Space Agency to discover:
  • Key Opportunities for maritime business hoping to exploit the latest advances in space technologies.
  • The key supports needed by business to seize advantage of these opportunities.
  • How to apply international best practice to ensure promising collavorations succeed.
  • Stronger links and collaborations between our space and maritime sectors can enhance employment and economic growth.
Theme(s): Maritime Operations
