Innovate UK's Global Incubator Programme launches to scale up businesses from ocean sector

20 October 2022

Innovate UK’s Global Incubator Programme, delivered in partnership with Innovate UK EDGE, is an acceleration programme for up to 8 innovative high growth and scaling businesses from the ocean sector to work with a world-leading incubator in Canada building long-term relationships and foundations to accelerate future market growth.

This programme is now live and open for applications.

Canada has become a world leader in engineering products and services suited to extreme harsh ocean environments, marine remote sensing technologies, and ocean observing systems. Atlantic Canada contributes more than half of Canada’s $36bn ocean economy and is home to a strong cluster of ocean industries and to ground breaking ocean research. This region is quickly becoming a globally recognised hub of oceans expertise with the potential to be a significant contributor to a number of Global Value Chains associated with the oceans sector.

Innovative companies in the ocean sector can join the tailored 5-month incubation programme delivered in partnership with COVE, a global innovation centre for the ocean technology sector located in Nova Scotia, Canada.

A virtual programme briefing event will take place on Tuesday 01 November 2022 15:30 - 16:30 where attendees can learn more about the programme, be introduced to COVE - the incubator partner in Canada, and receive guidance on the application process.
