MarRI-UK Involvement


MarRI-UK will focus on research and innovation within mid TRL (3–7) levels to address the opportunities between 'discovery and research' and 'commercialisation' of maritime technologies and systems. It will develop a structured, coherent, and comprehensive approach leading to national and regional development and economic growth. 

A maritime sector strengthened by MarRI-UK will help the co-ordination of research across the maritime sector by giving an understanding of commercial opportunities aligned to a shared roadmap. This will underpin government initiatives and investment and support the wider prosperity agenda linked to innovation.

Babcock BAE Systems
BMT     Cammell Laird
Lloyd’s Register     QinetiQ
