New markets Therefore we will also explore new markets. Besides our traditional fields (Transport & Shipping, Passengers & Yachting, Defence, Marine Systems, Oil & Gas, Authorities & Regulators) MARIN will also be active in new developing fields, such as Renewables, Life at Sea and innovative Infrastructure.


And how do we get there? With a strengthened knowledge base, reliable tools and modern facilities. With these tools, we will optimise the complete maritime operation, the ship as a system and the human element herein. We will assist the maritime sector from concept to operation with all our tools: CFD / simulations, model testing, simulators and monitoring on board.


With our knowledge and ideas we want to stimulate open innovation for sustainable solutions, by coming with innovative ideas based on our knowledge, which is sometimes ‘inspired by nature’.


Advanced numerical tools & measurement equipment We want to make a successful transition to less - but more complex - model tests and a growth in simulations and digitisation. Now that computational techniques are becoming more mature, and results are becoming more accurate, some of the traditional model testing will be replaced by desk studies. This implies that we will perform more desk studies using advanced numerical tools, and that our model


tests will shift towards more complex experiments. Apart from the strong investment in numerical tools, MARIN will therefore also invest in the development of its advanced measurement equipment.


As said, the basis for all this is our knowledge. That is why we also updated our Technology Plan based on the objectives of our new Strategy. We identified four generic ‘enabling’ research fields that are vital for MARIN’s future: • Computational Fluid Dynamics • Time Domain Simulations • Measurements & Big Data Analysis • Operations & Human Factors
