Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 2

Closing Date: 13/07/2022

UK businesses and research organisations can access funding for innovative clean maritime projects.

This competition is administered by Innovate UK (IUK); the UK’s innovation agency. IUK works with people, companies and partner organisations to de-risk, enable and support innovation, and promote UK economic growth. IUK is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) – a non-departmental public body, funded by a grant-in-aid from the UK government through the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The funding is from The Department for Transport (DfT).

Through the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 2, the Department for Transport will work with Innovate UK (IUK) to invest in innovative feasibility studies and pre-deployment projects. This competition is part of a suite of interventions to be launched by the UK Shipping Office for Reducing Emissions (UK SHORE). UK SHORE aims to transform the UK into a global leader in the design and manufacturing of clean maritime technology.

The Clean Maritime Demonstration Round 2 competition has two strands:

  • Strand 1: Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 2 – Feasibility
  • Strand 2: Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 2 – Collaborative R&D

Strand 1 of the competition is funding detailed feasibility studies and plans for innovative technology demonstrations of scalable clean maritime solutions. Projects must undertake a technical and economic feasibility study associated with the development and real world demonstration of one or more of the specific themes.

Strand 2 of the competition is funding agile technology demonstrations and pre-deployment testing of clean maritime technologies. Projects must design, develop and test novel clean maritime technologies focused for on-vessel technologies or shoreside infrastructure including at ports and harbours.
