MERIKA (Marine Energy Research Innovation and Knowledge Accelerator) is an ambitious initiative by UHI (University of the Highlands and the Islands), located in Scotland and the UK’s outermost region. Funded by the European Union FP7 (REGPOT) programme, the project seeks to establish a marine energy research and innovation hub in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, close to the actual resource.

Alongside seven European scientific institutions and with the cooperation of three UHI partners (SAMS, ERI, LCC), MERIKA will focus on building research capacity, upgrading infrastructure, and reinforcing international collaboration with stakeholders from across the marine energy sector.
