Maritime Innovation Hub: Innovation for Growth Programme at the Port of Tyne

The Port of Tyne's Maritime Innovation Hub has launched a new "Innovation for Growth" programme aimed at SMEs in the North East of England.

The programme will facilitate collaborations and cross-sector technology transfer for SMEs and Universities, allowing them to access the maritime sector via data, digital, net zero and other innovations.

Throughout April and May 2022, the Port of Tyne will facilitate a series of interactive "Innovation Hothouses" to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by Ports, with a focus on data, digital and decarbonisation. Participation is free, subject to a successful application, and the dates are as follows:

  • Monday 4 April - Getting to know each other (with evening meal)

  • Friday 29 April - Business Planning and Growth

  • Wednesday 20 May - Action Planning - Moving Forward
