The current programme is focused on accelerating development of innovative product ideas, working closely with businesses to take their products to the next stage of commercialisation.
The world class RD&I expertise, outstanding test facilities and the support available through Marine-i has already enabled many exciting new product developments, opening global market opportunities for Cornish businesses. We are now building further on this success

However, you may not have the specialist skills you need or know quite where to start. That is where Marine-i comes in, with its unique range of technology services. We can help guide you through your options and provide the support, resources and funding you need to fulfill your potential.
You may already be based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Or you could be based anywhere in the world and would like to establish a base in the county.
