European marine research projects could play a pivotal role in the sustainable development of our natural resources and in knowledge-based ocean governance. The European Commission has funded almost 600 marine research projects through the 6th and 7th Framework Programmes (FP6 and FP7), worth more than €1.1 billion. However, not all of the new knowledge generated by these projects has had the expected impact, largely due to the familiar obstacles impeding knowledge transfer between research institutions and third parties. This has led to a disparity between research investment and innovation from research.
Using an innovative process of knowledge collection, analysis and transfer, MarineTT aimed to unlock the knowledge generated by EC-funded marine environmental research. The MarineTT methodology assisted in reducing the barriers to impact from research.
