UK to lead charge in emerging maritime technology

Published: 28/01/2019

A new strategy has been launched that will set the UK as a pre-eminent global test bed of emerging technology, enabling the country to capitalise on the economic potential of maritime innovations.

The government has set out its ambitions for the country to remain a world-leader in the maritime industry for the next 30 years.

The Maritime 2050 strategy outlines a range of short, medium and long-term proposals, including developing technology, people, and infrastructure, to keep the maritime industry in the UK flourishing.

These include establishing an innovation hub at a UK port by 2030, looking at ways to clean up emissions from the industry, and building on the world-class training already offered to seafarers.
