Adam Schink, the NOC’s Marine Robotics Innovation Centre Manager, will present at Seawork International 2017, on Tuesday 13 June. The session will examine how businesses can engage with the NOC Innovation Centre, explore what funded support is available for collaborative R&D, and discuss how to access specialist expertise and testing facilities.
Adam commented “Encouraging business to access world class research facilities brings benefits for both parties. Sometimes, there is a technical challenge that needs a solution, or we can partner for collaborative research and development that leverages our expertise and testing facilities.”
The NOC is a hub for marine technology innovation and development. We have led pioneering developments in Marine Autonomous Systems for deployment in the most hostile and remote areas of the world’s oceans. Over the last few years this knowledge and expertise has been increasingly transferred to companies looking to develop commercial marine autonomous platforms for emerging offshore applications.
Adam continued “With currently in excess of £10m of R&D taking place in the Innovation Centre, we are proud to be at the forefront of developing the Marine Autonomous Systems of tomorrow.”
The presentation will cover the pioneering NOC Marine Autonomy developments to date, and will give an overview of the Innovation Centre and the funding streams that are beings used by companies involved to leverage support from the NOC.
