This essential workshop will provide the foundations for the further development of the UK Marine Industries Technology Roadmap and will focus on the Leisure, Superyacht and Small Commercial sectors.
The UK Marine Industries Roadmap Report Issue 1.0 was published in 2011/12. This report resulted from a series of workshops to assist the UK Marine Industries Alliance to develop a roadmap to identify future priorities, gaps, opportunities and capability needs for the UK Marine Industries.
The first roadmap achieved a number of key objectives including the engagement of a broad Marine community across all sectors, the building of consensus for priority opportunities, capabilities and technology needs, and the underpinning of the case for Innovate UK support through the Vessel Efficiency programme and more recently in Maritime Autonomous Systems, all delivered in partnership with Dstl.
It has been recognised that the Roadmap Issue 1.0 now needs to be revisited in order to reflect the latest developments in external drivers and future Marine markets, provide more granularity of timing, metrics, market size and supporting technology requirements in key areas, and to explore further the available UK capability.
Industry input is of course fundamental to this process and this workshop is a key event to facilitate that input. The event is free to attend and refreshments will be provided. In return we will be seeking extensive participation in the validation and development of market trends and drivers, key opportunity areas, and priority technology developments required in the sector.
Spaces are very limited so this is restricted to one person per company.
When & Where
Transport community at Knowledge Transfer Network
The mission of the Transport community on the Knowledge Transfer Network is to support the development of integrated, efficient and sustainable transport systems, by bringing together independent but interrelated organisations to stimulate innovation through knowledge transfer.
The KTN strategy is driven by market demand and supply-chain innovation; our work and programme priorities are set by the need for additionality, relevance, and neutrality. Winthin the transport community, we aim to break down traditional silo thinking and encourage knowledge, skills and technology exchange within the domains of Intelligent Mobility and Energy Efficiency.
We help focus TSB investment, and manage stand-alone programmes to better exploit technology to improve transport and transport infrastructure in the UK and overseas.
