EMECrid, the Group of European Equipment Suppliers for Innovation, Research and Development, is the group of EMEC in charge of the matters devoted to Research, Innovation and Development.
EMECRID was launched at the end of 2004.
A continuous renewal of product and process technologies through RDI activities, benchmarking and market research, including improved technical co-operation in the maritime supply chain, is continuously being pursued by the European marine equipment industries.
The goal of RDI will not only be better products, but also the best quality-price trade-off whilst maintaining exemplary standards of safety, operability and environmental responsibility. Improvements in the production process and focus on life cycle management will also be key factors in the innovation strategy.
In this respect an important responsibility rests on the shoulders of the suppliers. They are not only responsible for the building period of the ship, but for the whole life time support as well. Indeed, the relationship with the shipowners is key as they are, in fact, our final clients.
Operational reliability and low cost expectations of shipowners and operators demands ease of operation and maintenance/support equipment and first class, world wide equipment services and repair networks.
