Very successful Defence and Maritime Dual Use event held at Ocean Business

Marine South East hosted a very successful Defence and Maritime Dual-Use Conference at the recent Ocean Business exhibition which was funded by the European Commission.

Over 100 delegates attended the event to hear from highly informative speakers and take advantage of the excellent networking opportunities.

Copies of the presentation materials are now available from the link below.

Marine South East has received a lot of positive feedback subsequent to the event, and we are now keen to build on the momentum that has been generated. The objective is to take forward a programme of activities, including the ideas highlighted in the conference discussion, in a way which leverages existing initiatives and partner capabilities.

We hope very much that businesses and organisations will want to be a part of this, to help exploit the many cross-sector opportunities that exist.

We are canvassing organisations that attended the event with two questions:

1) Would you be willing to join a dual-use interest group if one were to be created, to enable communication, seek ideas, and publicise events?

2) Would you be willing, in principle, to join a small steering group to decide how the outcomes of the conference can best be taken forward?

If you are able to respond to these questions please do so to Jonathan Williams at
