CMMI was established in April 2019 and it is a Centre of Excellence for marine and maritime research, innovation and technology development based in the city of Larnaca. 

CMMI has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme and matching funding from the Cyprus Government. 

 The Institute’s vision is to drive sustainable Blue Growth, by addressing the needs of industrial and societal blue economy stakeholders.

Under the Institute there are ten Research and Innovation Centres that are involved in marine technology, marine robotics, maritime digitalisation, marine observation, marine and coastal ecosystems, marine biotechnology and aquaculture, the maritime human element, marine cultural heritage, marine and maritime policies and regional cooperation.

CMMI’s Scientific staff is already involved in significant projects that will create solutions to issues that concern both the industry and society such as addressing decarbonisation, protecting and restoring marine biodiversity, preventing and eliminating pollution, building a digital knowledge system of the ocean and attracting, developing and retaining the blue economy workforce.
