In 1988, the need to apply technology in the manufacture of fishing vessels led to the creation of the Soermar Technology Center, which would help small and medium-sized shipyards in the design and construction of vessels with the most advanced technology in the sector.
In 2002 the Soermar Technological Center Foundation was established, the purpose of which will be to seek new lines of joint action in Technical and Technological matters that improve the competitiveness of the Shipyards.
Prepare Research, Development and Innovation projects, both at national and European level.
Promote all those actions that may result in a competitive improvement of shipyards and companies in the maritime sector through an increase in the efficiency of their industrial activity.
Support to companies in the maritime sector in the search for financial aid and instruments for the materialization of R + D + i projects.
