Join us to discuss the priority technology themes that will help you exploit market opportunities in the marine and maritime industry.
The Technology Strategy Board (TSB), in collaboration with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (dstl), is further developing plans to continue support for R&D directly focussed on the marine and maritime industry. They aim to run a major collaborative R&D competition in early 2015, and the intent of this event is to assist in the definition of the scope for this competition.
This workshop is an essential event to ensure that the interventions to support R&D meet real requirements and we are looking for input from manufacturers, suppliers and researchers in all sectors including leisure, commercial, marine science, naval and offshore renewables support.
You will hear about the results of previous competitions, and indicative future plans and priorities from our point of view, but the main purpose is to hear your views and feedback.
This workshop will be your opportunity to provide feedback on previous R&D competitions, share your experiences and provide ideas on the kinds of future interventions that will deliver most value across the industry.
The TSB and dstl have already run highly successful two Collaborative R&D Competitions:
- £7m Vessel Efficiency: Piloting UK marine and maritime innovation and
- £5m Vessel Efficiency II: Better systems at Sea.
These calls have been scoped in alignment with the UK Marine Industries Roadmap, broadly covering the topics of Marine ICT and Green Shipping. The funders are now seeking to review the outcomes of these calls and, supported by this industry workshop, develop provisional priority topics for future support.
Places are limited at this workshop. Please indicate your interest in attending by filling out all fields in the registration form. Applications for this workshop will close on the 2nd June and successful applicants will be informed shortly afterwards.
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.
