The Sea-Changers Innovation Fund is a new fund that has launched to encourage and support innovative ideas and projects for marine conservation in the U.K.
The founding sponsor for the fund is MRT, a manufacturer of personal locator beacons (PLBs) and marine safety equipment that was founded by the inventor of the PLB, David Marshall, in 1975.
Sea-Changers recognizes that by its very nature, innovation is risky and unpredictable in terms of impact and benefits. The important thing about innovation is that there is learning from both successes and failures and, therefore, the successful application will need to explain how the success or failure of the project being applied for will be judged and measured.
The Sea-Changers Innovation Fund 2021 is now inviting applications from around the U.K. until June 18, 2021.
The winner will be awarded £2,000.
