Solent Maritime Innovation Gateway Design Workshop and Networking
The Solent Maritime Innovation Gateway will address the core challenge of coherence across the maritime ecosystem, by establishing a “One Stop Shop” for customers, businesses, researchers and innovators, easily accessed by international and national investors. It will utilise existing innovation hubs and facilities, supporting access to opportunities and potential future customers by creating a flourishing environment of exciting ideas, strong relationships and innovative technology.
Development of the Solent MIG is being led through a collaboration between Maritime UK Solent, the Solent Maritime Enterprise Zone (MEZ) and Connected Places Catapult (CPC), to create a central point of access that promotes the innovation and skills of the Solent’s maritime sector on the global stage.
We will ask stakeholders to develop a shared vision and joint understanding of cross-sector challenges and opportunities, to enable the Solent to exploit its strengths and its unique selling points to attract inward investment.
Purpose of this workshop
The aim of this design workshop is to bring together stakeholders from across the Solent maritime ecosystem, to map the current landscape, identify barriers and enablers to your objectives, establish initiatives to grow on the international stage and understand how the Solent MIG can support you. This will develop a shared vision and sustainable direction, driven by the stakeholders and beneficiaries of the Solent MIG.
Applications will be open to all stakeholders connected with the Solent maritime sector, to capture perspectives across the diverse ecosystem.
