Objectives and strategic plan
MARHIS will achieve the proposed objectives thanks to its singular characteristics offering the possibility of an integrated physical and numerical modeling necessary to support new developments from conceptual design to final validation. Moreover, the experimental management system implemented in the MARHIS provides this infrastructure of a singularity and unique ability that will serve as a tractor of researchers and national and international companies. This uniqueness is combined with one of the largest research groups in ocean and coastal engineering in the world, including more than 40 PhDs in coastal or offshore engineering. To establish an ICTS in the field of coastal and offshore engineering that allows any study, design, operation or construction project in the coast or at the open sea with the maximum guarantee of functionality, stability, reliability, security and sustainability attainable, all supported with the best possible scientific-technological knowledge and making use of the most important and advanced tools and methodologies.
