MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands) was founded in 1932 as an independent research facility and conducts research for the maritime and offshore industries and governments. We help to find innovative solutions from the design phase to the real operation and to bridge the gap between academic research and market demand. Our aim is to develop cleaner, safer and smarter ships and maritime constructions. To achieve this, we work together with an extensive innovation and research network of customers and partners, using advanced computational and test facilities, full-scale measurement and simulators. MARIN is based in Wageningen, with 350 staff working daily in advanced hydrodynamics and nautical expertise.
