      The EU INTERREG-IV Programme (2007-2013) is an important source of external competitive funding for a range of knowledge-based marine projects promoting regional and cross-border co-operation and development. During the period 2007-2008, fifteen marine INTERREG-IV projects (including two preparatory actions) with Irish participation were approved for funding. The total value of these projects is circa €35m with over €4m in grant-aid going to the Irish partners. This directory provides a summary of each of these fifteen projects. These projects in turn contribute to the implementation of research, development and innovation priorities identified in the national Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (SSTI: 2006-2013) and its marine component, the Sea Change Strategy (2007-2013).
