Agenda

Overview

This event showcased how UK companies are developing and supporting projects in the shipping, finance, insurance, oil and gas, marine, mining, and environmental sectors. An international audience drew upon key know-how from the UK and the North West based on the skills acquired in the North Sea. The Arctic also presents British research with huge opportunities to work with Arctic industry, particularly by assisting with environmental impact assessments and designing in sustainability. UKTI is extremely active in these areas. DWF was supported by NERC and UKTI’s domestic, Nordic Baltic, and North American teams.
