Visitors all the way from Taiwan’s National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) paid a visit UCC’s impressive Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre (HMRC) on Wednesday April 2nd.

The Taiwanese university is an Associate Partner of MaRINET (Marine Renewables Infrastructure Network), a European Commission-funded infrastructure initiative, coordinated by Beaufort Research, UCC.

After a tour of the centre, both sides shared on the work they were doing in their common field and discussed collaboration possibilities.
