The Coastal and Marine Resources Centre provides a focus within UCC for research on coastal and marine resources, their status and potential for sustainable development. The Centre actively seeks out funding programmes to which it submits research proposals, developing a work programme incorporating research, consultancy and training initiatives.

Sources of funding include the European Union (e.g. Fifth framework, Interreg, Life), the Higher Education Authority, Bord Iascaigh Mara, the Marine Institute, the Rockall Studies Group, the Geological Survey of Ireland, the Environment Protection Agency and Enterprise Energy Ireland.
