The Great South West – covering Devon, Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly, Dorset and Somerset – has been chosen as the country’s Marine and Maritime Launchpad. The region will receive up to £7.5 million of funding from Innovate UK to support innovation and growth.

UK registered organisations can now apply for funding from Innovate UK for business-led projects that grow activities in the marine and maritime cluster in the Great South West.

One potential focus of funded projects is clean maritime: achieving net-zero through transition to alternative fuel powered vessels using energy from low or zero emission sources or highly efficient batteries, as well as integrating ports into a decarbonised energy network and supplying the fuels of the future.

The funding competition closes on Wednesday 6th December 2023.
