The UK Government has set out an ambitious Clean Maritime Plan that intends for the UK to lead the charge globally on achieving zero emissions shipping by 2050. Decarbonisation of the maritime sector presents a complex challenge that requires a significant amount of research and development to be carried out rapidly, in order to reduce emissions and the harmful impacts of the sector.
- What does that mean for clean growth opportunities in the South West?
- How can research and industry work together to become more sustainable in the marine environment?
Hear the latest developments from University of Plymouth researchers and key partners on how their collaborations are tackling the complex challenge of achieving clean growth.
The University leads innovation in numerous inter-related marine and maritime disciplines to tackle the clean maritime challenge from multiple perspectives, channelling a systems-thinking approach to developing solutions.
But there is more to be done, and that’s where your perspectives are welcomed during this interactive workshop. Share open dialogue with experts and offer your experiences with fellow industry professionals, decision makers and academics, and learn how to engage with the University to nurture new ideas and collaborative opportunities to fruition.
The University of Plymouth has a long heritage of world-leading marine and maritime research, with an ethos of sustainable management of the oceans at the core of the Marine Institute. In addition to carrying out fundamental research and development in the technology to aid decarbonisation of the maritime sector, we champion a holistic look at the impacts – intended or not – that clean maritime solutions could have on marine life, their habitats, and society.
New opportunities are on the horizon due to an increasing number of funding calls focused on the clean maritime agenda, making now the ideal time to get ahead of the curve. During this event, you’ll hear about the mechanisms and support in place to facilitate engaging with the University, plus the option to see our cutting-edge COAST Laboratory, CyberSHIP Lab and SHIP Simulator up close to discover how you can benefit from their advanced capabilities.
This is a face-to-face event that will not be recorded or streamed online.
It will be of most relevance to those in academia, industry, policy or environmental management and whose work is either currently, or has potential to be, applied to an aspect of the maritime sector. This may include those working in: marine and environmental sciences, local authorities, shipping and logistics including managing port and harbours, energy, autonomy and marine technology, physics and chemistry, cybersecurity, engineering, materials and manufacturing, economics.
There are a limited number of spaces available on the invitation list; if you feel you would benefit from attending this event and have not received an invitation, please contact Sarah Fear (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and link to book.
