NOC to Host Another Marine Autonomy Showcase

The UK’s National Oceanography Centre is to host a new Marine Autonomy and Technology Showcase in November this year.

The week-long programme of workshops, talks, demonstrations and networking builds on the success of our 2015 Marine Autonomy Showcase, and the launch of the Marine Robotics Innovation Centre, and is in response to the growing desire of UK marine technology businesses to engage with the research base for the further development of marine autonomous systems.

In 2015 the NOC in Southampton welcomed over 20,000 visitors in total, with over 500 attending an event in February 2015 showcasing the NOC’s work with industry.

Kevin Forshaw, NOC’s associate director, Innovation and Enterprise, said: “The NOC welcomes thousands of visitors each year, many working within the region in thriving marine technology based businesses. We are currently engaged with in excess of £10m of R&D collaborative projects with industry partners, and this showcase is both a celebration of those partnerships and, we hope, a catalyst for more collaboration within the region.”

Autonomy and Technology Showcase will run from 14-18 November at the NOC’s waterfront site in Southampton, and much of the newly opened Marine Robotics Innovation Centre will be used for the event, along with the NOC’s supporting conference facilities.
