The UK Government has set out its Maritime 2050 vision for the future of the UK’s maritime services sector. The strategy looks at developing technology, people, and infrastructure, to keep the maritime industry in the UK flourishing. Specifically, this includes establishing an innovation hub at a UK port by 2030, looking at ways to clean up emissions from the industry, and building on existing seafarer training. In addition, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency is looking at what is needed to ensure the safety and testing of autonomous ships to position the UK as the best place to trial this technology.
