Innovate UK’s Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP), delivered by Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), is looking for ambitious innovative UK SMEs in the Marine and Offshore Robotics sectors with emerging Surface & Underwater Marine Robotics systems & technologies.

Successful applicants will benefit from an exclusive 12-month tailored wrap-around support programme delivered by a dedicated EEN Advisor, aimed at building innovation partnerships and fostering future international growth. The GBIP will kick-off with a preparation phase to establish your key objectives and provide essential tools and information before the first visit.

During the programme, there will be two Innovation Visits to Canada (subject to travel and other restrictions) taking place in November 2020 and June 2021. Each will consist of tailored site visits, introductions to key players, and exclusive networking opportunities with like-minded Canadian businesses. In June 2021, you will benefit from a high-profile presence at the H2O: Home to Overseas Conference, Industry Showcase and Exhibition, Halifax, Nova Scotia. Between visits to Canada, you will get to meet with leading-edge industrial and research organisations at International B2B Matchmaking Events running in parallel to Oceanology International 2020 in London and Ocean Business 2021 in Southampton.
