MERIKA Project Officially Launched
The Marine Energy Research Innovation and Knowledge Accelerator (MERIKA) Project was officially launched by the Project Manager Damian Collins last night at the EIMR conference in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis.
MERIKA is an ambitious initiative by University of the Highlands and the Islands (UHI), located in Scotland and the UK’s outermost region.
The project revolves around the concept of turning the UHI Faculty of Science, Health and Engineering into a reference research and innovation hub for all of Europe on the theme of marine energy.
Funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme, the MERIKA Project runs from 2014-2017.
