Technology and Innovation in UK Maritime Funding Call
The Department for Transport (DfT) provides funding for investment in innovative maritime research and innovation that supports the ambitions set out in Maritime 2050 and Technology and Innovation in UK Maritime route-map.
The maritime sector is likely to undergo significant changes as technology revolutionises the way the sector operates and environmental concerns create new and more stringent requirements for the maritime industry.
The Department for Transport (DfT) is keen to continue to engage with industry to promote the development of technological innovation in UK maritime. For this reason, the DfT is launching a call of £1M called the Technology and Innovation in UK Maritime Call.
The call will fund innovative solutions within mid Technology Readiness Level (TRL 3-7) to demonstrate potential applications for innovative technology or for proof of concept of new ideas in this field. £1M is available for the competition, which administered by MarRI-UK.
