The MAROFF programme works to realise the Government’s maritime strategy for promoting innovation and environmentally sustainable value creation in the maritime industries.

The programme supports maritime companies and research institutions in further developing their knowledge-based advantages and provides funding to projects targeted towards specific research challenges that must be solved to achieve advances in the key areas of innovation identified in the Maritim21 and MARUT collaborative processes.

The MAROFF programme’s target groups are shipping companies, the shipbuilding industry, service providers and equipment suppliers to all types of vessels and aquaculture facilities. The programme also supports knowledge-building at research institutions in technology and social science-related fields of importance to the maritime sector in Norway.
