Call in Maritime Technologies

MARTEC will open a transnational call up to 29th May 2009 for collaborative research projects.

Fundable areas are defined more precisely in the national research programmes. Please, visit the MARTEC web page

Financial support will be awarded by the national funding institutions for project duration of up to 36 months.

Priority funding is for projects which include at least two independent industrial participants from two partner countries.

The participation in transnational MARTEC projects offers the following advantages:

  • using the own national funding regulations,
  • cooperating in small and concise consortia (ten partners at most),
  • tackling complex projects which cannot be accomplished and financed by oneself or with national partners

The final date for submitting of full proposals is 29th May, 2009.

The research projects initiated by this call will be financed by the following partner institutions from the ERA-NET MARTEC consortium:


Danish Maritime Authority (DMA)


Tekes, the National Technology Agency of Finland TEKES)


Ministry for Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Spatial Planning (MEEDDAD)


OSEO (not a MARTEC partner)


Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi)


Research Council of Norway (RCN)


National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR)


Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI)


The Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA)

The participation of applicants from other countries is allowed if a national organization is willing to fund successful national participants.

Application Procedure

A one stage application procedure is planned in opposite to the pilot call to test a shorter application time. Consortia should send only the MARTEC full proposal form, in addition to any further information required by the relevant national funding institution (see specific regulations). Full proposals will be evaluated by international  experts. A national eligibility check will be done in the same time.

Who we are

MARTEC is an ERA-NET Coordination Action and a partnership of 16 European ministries and funding organisations responsible for funding RTD in maritime technologies from 12 countries. All together these countries represent about ¾ of the gross tonnage (GT) of shipbuilding output in Europe which shows that this network already covers the EU key players in that area.

What we focus on

MARTEC focuses on funding issues and is planning to create a lasting network of funding agencies that will improve the way in which maritime technologies research is managed and developed. This network will work out a strategy for future maritime technological research funding through trans-national calls and programmes.

MARTEC has developed a full-blown set of activities that will have a lasting impact on the maritime industry’s research funding processes and future direction.

The project will

• Analyse national programme objectives and priorities,
• Compare management procedures,
• Identify gaps in existing programmes,
• Suggest ways of removing administrative barriers,
• Define topics for future research activities and calls,
• Develop strategies and an action plan for the opening of national programmes for European cooperation.
