Maritime UK is to coordinate a bid for a maritime sector deal as part of the UK Government's new industrial strategy.
In November, the Chair of the Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy Select Committee, Iain Wright MP, attended Maritime UK's Board meeting and challenged the sector to play a "big role" as the UK develops its industrial strategy.
Maritime UK's Policy Working Group will coordinate the bid. This process will include workshops and focus groups with stakeholders from across the UK maritime sector, looking at the "pillars" of a maritime industrial strategy, including areas such as innovation, exports, infrastructure and skills.
It is anticipated that the workshops and focus groups will be held in June and July.
If you would like to be informed about these and other opportunities to shape the bid, please complete the form below.
