In partnership with the University of Plymouth, the Marine Business Technology Centre (MBTC), is holding a series of digital events in early November. The events are designed to bring together digital and marine businesses, with networking and learning opportunities centred around key industry challenges.

Free to attend, businesses from across Devon are invited to register their interest for the events, which will take place at the University's Marine Station.

Marine and Maritime Cyber Security | Tuesday 5 November

Speakers from University of Exeter, University of Plymouth, Frazer Nash, Bluescreen IT and Thales.

Marine Immersive Technologies | Thursday 7 November

Sessions will cover the National Marine Park and the digital opportunities it brings to businesses, the Mayflower Autonomous Ship project, examples of digital technology that could be applied to marine, and examples of virtual and augmented reality activity in the marine sector.

Both events will also involve facilitated challenges and discussions, which aim to identify new projects that digital and marine businesses can work on together, with the support of the MBTC. With digital technologies already underpinning a lot of the marine sector’s innovations and becoming integral to the sector’s advancement, the interplay between marine and digital is crucial.

Booking is essential for both events. Businesses can register via the above or email to Mel Cass, Business Exchange Officer mel.cass@plymouth.gov.uk
