All this agents will concentrate their technological research and actions in six different working areas: ship design and building technology; efficient energy and alternative energy; communication and intelligent systems; fishing technology and systems; oceanographic technology and marine environment protection; and security, comfort, and health technologies.
In this CENIT tendering, 16 conjunction projects have been approved; in which the average of participation is 16 companies (59% small business) and 16 research teams. The CDTI (Industry Technological Development Institute), managing organization of the CENIT, will allocate 180 million euros for this 16 projects, which will cover almost 50% of the total investment.

By coordinating this big project for developing automated intelligent ships on the next decade. Innovamar, wants to demonstrate that it “plays an important role” o the promotion of R+D+I in the Marine Sector by promoting business enterprises and catalyzing the Public Administrations actions.
