This call for projects redistributes part of the funding contribution made to 2019 Institut Carnot MERS (iC MERS) revenue. This funding is used to finance upstream research or proofs of concept that are likely to lead to technology transfer.

The projects should meet the following criteria:

  • Address one of the 3 areas of iC MERS expertise: Safe, Smart and Sustainable Marine Industry
  • Contribute to the scientific and technological progress of iC MERS
  • Aim to develop the iC MERS offering for industry, in the form of products, services or expertise.

As they announced the results, the selection committee emphasized the quality of the projects submitted, which did not make their job easy. Most of the projects selected showcase the collaboration between different iC MERS teams, which will pave the way for the development of an active MERS community.
