Technology roadmap for the UK marine industries

IfM ECS has delivered a roadmapping project for the UK’s marine industries on behalf of Innovate UK.

Marine RoadmapWe have previously run similar projects for other key sectors such as Quantum Technologies, Synthetic Biology and Robotics and Autonomous Systems. The UK marine industry is globally competitive with strengths across a variety of technologies. The aim of the roadmap is to develop a shared vision so that industry and government can work together to develop export-led growth.


The roadmap looks at those parts of the industry that are engaged in building vessels or supplying equipment or services for the commercial, leisure, naval and marine science sectors. It identifies key opportunities in which industry and government should invest to support export growth and it maps the main technical capabilities needed to capitalise on these opportunities. The roadmap can be viewed here and will be published officially on 18 November 2015.
