Innovation with Future Seawork

Seawork’s latest initiative, Future Seawork, is set to accelerate inventions from the next generation of innovators.

Three projects from current university students, which have strong potential or are close to being brought to market in the commercial marine industry, will be hosted in the Innovations Hall at the exhibition.

For Seawork 2024, the projects will be proposed by Maritime Research and Innovation UK (MarRI-UK) based on its close links with UK maritime universities.

Celebrate the launch of Future Seawork at the European Commercial Marine Awards on the evening of Tuesday 11 June. The Future Seawork Innovation Prize for 2025 will be awarded to three maritime projects selected from university entries with each receiving:

  • Display pod in the Innovations Hall – alongside the Innovations Showcase and Small Business Enterprise Zone – at Seawork 2025.
  • Prize announcement at the European Commercial Marine Awards (ECMAs).
  • Promotion and exposure in Maritime Journal and on
  • Mentoring from a senior figure in the commercial marine industry.
