Solent Maritime Innovation Gateway

The Solent Maritime Innovation Gateway will act as a catalyst for transforming the Solent Maritime region. The Solent's maritime sector is a strong, vibrant, world-leading industry. With a powerful £5.8bn maritime economy and 152,000-strong workforce, the Solent is the beating heart of the world's marine and maritime sector.

The challenge is to coordinate this ecosystem of business and research  and provide the path of least resistance for innovation, addressing opportunities and access to this pulsating community. Creating a One Stop Shop, named the Solent Maritime Innovation Gateway, is our opportunity to provide a single point of access, coherence and an enterprise approach to building a flourishing environment of exciting ideas, strong relationships and pioneering innovative technology.
