Focus Issue 2, 2016
In this issue, we look at some strong partnerships with leading academic institutions such
as Imperial College London, where BMT is supporting the latest research being conducted in the Aeronautics Department. The UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) has also long since collaborated with industry, capitalising on the wealth of naval capabilities available within the UK defence industry. We focus on the Naval Defence Partnering Team which brings
together MOD and industry partners, providing the intelligence and necessary expertise to deliver the UK’s future fleet. Elsewhere, Dirk de Jong, Director Design & Innovation at Oceanco, believes that the mutual setting of goals is critical to any successful collaboration – something to which Oceanco, MARIN and BMT Nigel Gee have dedicated time and effort over the last two years.
