Since its foundation CETENA has always been involved in research and innovation projects in the maritime sector. CETENA has a dedicated team that manages the research and development activities and is responsible for:

  • Keeping in touch with Universities, Research Centres, the Ministry of Transportation, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Education and Research, the Ministry of Defence, regional technology districts, national innovation clusters and competence centres.
  • Joining different interest groups at European level as WATERBORNE Technology Platform, ECMAR (European Council for Applied Maritime Research), the Zero Emission Waterborne Transport cPP, Sea Naval (the naval WG of Sea Europe) and ASD DRDT (the defence R&D WG of the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe).
  • Monitoring of regional, national and European calls.
  • Harmonizing CETENA's technological trajectories with those of Fincantieri’s innovation departments.

CETENA participates, as coordinator or as a partner, to research and development projects, both at Italian (regional and national) and European level, covering all CETENA’s operational areas thanks to its expertise in structures and materials, fluid dynamics, monitoring systems, environmental impact, simulations, augmented and virtual reality, safety at sea and ship survivability.
