Awards and Distinctions

Science Foundation Ireland MaREI Research Centre Award

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) has recently funded a €25 million Centre for Marine Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI).  The Centre is a cluster of key university and industrial partners dedicated to solving the main scientific, technical and socio-economic challenges related to ocean energy.  MaREI will be based in UCC and will be shared between third-level institutions in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Maynooth.
