The Innovation Hub is being delivered jointly by industry experts from ORE Catapult and the Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network who have extensive cross-sector track records and experience.
The Technical Advisory Group (“TAG”)
The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is made up of senior technology leaders from all parts of the UK offshore wind industry, research organisations, and the supply chain.
