Cardiff backs marine R&D
£12m awarded to Bangor and Swansea unis for Seacams 2 project
The Welsh government has awarded around £12m of EU funds towards Bangor University and Swansea University’s joint Sustainable Expansion of the Applied Coastal and Marine Sectors (Seacams) 2 project.
The cash will provide specialist research and development programmes to help businesses exploit commercial opportunities and create new products and patents over the next four years.
Director of the Seacams project Professor Colin Jago said: “We will build on our five years of work with industry during the first Seacams funding phase.
“In pooling expertise at Bangor and Swansea universities, we have the scope of knowledge to provide the detailed technical information required to support these exciting developments, which could change the way we resource our energy needs in Wales.”
