Maritime 2050 seeks to enhance UK's strength on maritime innovation focusing mostly on autonomy and low-carbon technologies. For many of these technologies there is a time-limited golden opportunity to be an early adopter, particularly on low-carbon.

Additionally, Maritime 2050 is designed to maximise UK strength in this area, retaining and enhancing its competitive advantage and developing new areas to compliment the offer, like green finance.

Meanwhile, as the sector aspires to expand its diversity, Maritime 2050 challenges industry to broaden this work, working closely through Maritime UK’s Women in Maritime Taskforce.

As previously reported, the strategy is based on seven core ambitions:

UK competitive advantage;
Technology;
People;
Environment;
Trade;
Infrastructure;
Security;
Resilience.
