CLEAN MARITIME PLAN INTRODUCTION: 1 - 13
SECTION 1 - TACKLING
The Department for Transport will work with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, to invest up to £20m for innovative clean maritime and smart shipping projects. The Secretary of State in 2018 was Chris Grayling, Minister for Marine, Nus Ghani, and Sec. of State from 2019, Grant Shapps.
Horizon Europe is the EU's €100 billion euro research and innovation programme, the European equivalent of UKRI, 35% of which is allocated to achieving climate objectives under SDG13, but where funding applications are extremely complicated - and SMEs inevitably fall at the administration and finance hurdle.
