Maritime UK South West Business Forum

Friday, 31 Jan 2020

Met Office, Exeter

The UK South Coast Marine Cluster have partnered with Cornwall Marine Network to form Maritime UK South West, affiliating with Maritime UK Nationally to create a stronger voice and cluster for the SW Ocean Economy. Under a new format and tighter geography, Maritime UK South West aims to ramp up its work with business and bring together and promote the region’s maritime strengths, creating stronger links between the SW sector and national government.

In addition to the relaunch of the cluster, the free all day event will be a one stop shop offering 15 presentations covering support for finance, export, R&D, skills and supply chain. As with the cluster, the idea is to bring everything together to make it easier for businesses to engage.

Award-winning South West businesses will provide warts and all case studies of how they profited from working with a wide range of support. The focus is on the ocean economy, but the support opportunities will be useful across numerous sectors.

Meet the NCC

Katy Riddington, Director of NCC Connect, will be speaking about how SMEs can access the facilities and expertise at the National Composites Centre and the Satellite Applications Catapult.

COVID-19 update

Following the Prime Minister’s Briefing on Monday 23 March where he gave clear guidance for the nation to stay at home, and in line with University of Bristol action to close down all of its buildings, the NCC has taken the decision to close both the NCC HQ and NCC Filton centres until further notice, effective from 24 March 2020. 

The vast majority of NCC staff have already been working from home, successfully holding digital meetings with our members, customers and other partners and will continue to do so. You can still get in touch with us through your usual contacts via email and phone, or please email info@nccuk.com. We are in touch with our customers to discuss arrangements for our current projects.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will continue to update our website and social media channels to keep you informed.
