The goal of this document is to present and share the R&D work performed by MERIC - Marine Energy Research and Innovation Center during its first three years of implementation (2015-2018). There are ten main chapters, representing each of the R&D projects that have been actively contributing to MRE applied knowledge and know-how in Chile. These are organised in three main general sections: Resource Assessment and Technology, Interaction with Marine Ecosystem, Social and Economical Aspects. An effort has been made to preserve the original character of the texts, aligned with the intrinsic heterogeneity of the project teams, which gather academic, private and public participants.
