Marine research grants awarded

Ten research and development Pathfinder Fund grants, worth a total of £400,000 have now been to research bodies awarded by The Centre for Marine and Petroleum Technology (CMPT).

Awards have been made to seven universities and three UK companies to begin key research work on oil and gas related projects.

All projects in the pathfinder Programmes are relatively high risk involving new and novel methodologies, science or technology and will last less than one year.
