Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the advances made by Ireland's Marine Institute, since its foundation under the Marine Institute Act in 1991. It also details the contributions made by Ireland to European thinking on the marine, with particular reference to the "Galway Declaration" of 2004. In 2004 the "Galway Declaration" drew attention to the major contribution that the maritime sector can make to the Lisbon Agenda on the environment. The Marine Institute has co-ordinated an extensive consultation process between all stakeholders to create "Sea Change - A Marine Knowledge, Research and Innovation Strategy for Ireland (2007- 2013)" outlining a detailed programme of marine RTDI as the sector's contribution to the overall national strategy. Ireland and the Irish marine sector are ready to make their contribution to this vision.
