The total amount that Matís received through these 22 projects was approximately 1.8 m Euros which is a considerable contribution to Icelandic research community. Many of these projects are still ongoing.

This level of participation shows that Matís has good reputation in the research community and it is fully comparable to similar foreign research companies.

FP7With increased international research cooperation a new dimension has been added to Icelandic society. Fishing and exportation of fresh and processed fish products has for a long time been Iceland's main industry. With increased international research participation new opportunities arise which can be used to develop new products and equipment for the fishing industry as well as for other industries.
