Published:  07 September, 2016

GORDON_DRUMMOND.JPGThe National Subsea Research Initiative (NSRI) has announced it is hosting its second annual Developers Day event on 15th September in a bid to further support companies to get their technology to market.

NSRI says the session will feature a series of presentations outlining available resources and the support organisations which can provide assistance with research and development, tax, funding and patenting.

Representatives from HGF , Johnston Carmichael, Burness Paull, Astrimar, and Simmons & Co will also take to the stage to provide an insight into the range of patent box schemes, R&D tax relief and collaborative industry agreements aimed at supporting the developer community get their technology off the ground. They will also offer advice on how to finance a new venture and secure investor support.

Dr Gordon Drummond (pictured), project director of NSRI, said: “The aim of the event is to inform the developer community of the support available to them as they progress their businesses. Important updates on legislative changes will be described, specifically changes to the treatment of R&D activities by HMRC and changes to the API standard for the qualification of subsea technology.”
