CETMAR is an inter-institutional coordination centre with an interdisciplinary integration of all marine research and technology resources, and was created to address and reinforced the connection between RTD agents and marine and maritime industries.

In these projects CETMAR leads the Working Package and Tasks linked to Stakeholder participation, dissemination, communication, exploitation and training.
