Maritime UK SW Clean Maritime Roadmap Review and CMDC 3 Consortia Building Meeting – Rescheduled 3rd October

This event has been rescheduled for the 3rd October to allow for the event to incorporate partnering and consortium building for the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition round 3. The event is planned as a face to face meeting (with the option of MS Teams inclusion). However it is strongly recommended to attend in person as it may be difficult to broadcast all of the conversations taking place in the lecture theatre, not to mention missing out on the networking and free lunch!

In June 2020 organizations from across the South West came together, hosted by Maritime UK SW to create an action plan to shift the dial on clean maritime in the South West. Since that time considerable progress has been made in fulfilling the plan created, “Maritime UK SW Clean Maritime Roadmap“. The first part of the meeting will be a review and extension of this plan.

The meeting will also help organisations looking to advance clean maritime and to bid into the third round of Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition funding to network, and form partnerships in addition to learning more about wider opportunities in the sector.
