More information

We like to share our hydrodynamic and nautical expertise. So every two years we open our doors to the public. The next opportunity to visit MARIN will be in 2020.

Read the Menu and find information about our research and our research facilities. With pictures, animations and movies.


Those operating in an environment that’s as dynamic as the sea itself  need access to expert knowledge and independent research. Maritime research institute MARIN is a provider of advanced hydrodynamic and nautical expertise to the international maritime and offshore industry and governments. We do this based on the latest calculation and testing facilities, full-scale measurement and simulators, and by working together with our extensive innovation and research network.

All this accumulated expertise helps us to realise our goal: the development of cleaner, safer and smarter ships and maritime constructions.

Founded in 1932, MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands) is based in Wageningen and employs a staff of 370.
