MarRI-UK Publishes Report on Smart Shipping Technology
MarRI-UK has published a report that highlights the most important drivers underpinning the development of smart shipping technologies in the UK. The report was an outcome of the research commissioned by MarRI-UK and paid for by the Department for Transport (DfT). A consortium led by London Economics, supported by NLAI and Marine South East, was selected to undertake the research. The report focuses on the UK’s strengths in smart shipping technology and provides economic and technology data to inform the DfT’s approach to supporting the smart shipping sector in the UK.
John Howie MBE, Chair of MarRI-UK, said:
“MarRI-UK’s report squarely underpins the Department for Transport’s Maritime 2050 Strategy: Navigating the Future, and demonstrates the value of industry and academia collaborating to highlight the economic benefits linked to investment within the Maritime Sector."
