MarRI-UK received £224,000 grant from National Shipbuilding Office

MarRI-UK is excited to announce that we have received a £224,000 grant from the National Shipbuilding Office to embark on a study of the maritime sector. The goal of this study is to gain enhanced insight into the existing shipbuilding research expertise in the UK and maximise opportunities to disrupt the market and step ahead of the competition for enhancing UK shipbuilding’s productivity and competitiveness. This work will enable better understanding of how to achieve the NSbS vision of being globally successful, innovative and a sustainable UK shipbuilding enterprise.

The primary deliverable for this requirement is a detailed project report, addressing a number of key questions relating to the UK's current capabilities, based upon the outputs of a study at marine academic institutions across the UK and from competitor nations. Secondly, a network map of UK academic research expertise classified by topic areas related to NSO pillars will be produced.

This project will be run by MarRI-UK and will be carried out by seven maritime-leading UK universities: University of Newcastle, University of Plymouth, University of Supthampton, University of Strathlcyde, University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moore's University and University College London.
