FOUR ways we remove risk from tech investment:

We need to reduce the risk and uncertainty associated with investing in emerging technologies if we are going to maximise the opportunities they offer.

Identify Key Issues – Making sure we focus on issues that are not only significant in terms of potential ROI, but are able to be addressed by technology.

Translate for Market- Defining the problem in a way that is understood from the global tech ecosystem and matched by metrics that allow us to measure impact.

Source Top Vendors- Making sure we tap into the leading-edge approaches and providers in the world and if necessary, bringing into maritime from other industries.

Piloting and Scale-up- Planning and delivering experiments and pilots that validate the technology against our metrics and ensuring we only make further investment.
