Marine Science and Technology Centre (MarsTec) is a multidisciplinary research division at Klaipeda University established on the basis of former Coastal Research and Planning Institute and Institute of Mechatronics. Being part of the Faculty, MarsTec is largely oriented towards implementation of new ideas linking different fields of marine sciences and transferring them into education by attracting EU, regional and national funds.
