The purpose of the Cross-Sector Call is to encourage more UK businesses into the offshore wind supply chain by attracting cross-sector engagement and helping potential new market entrants to overcome barriers to diversification.  The introduction of new approaches and technologies will support the growth of the sector, both in the UK and global export markets.  Grants of between £25K and £100K are available.

OWGP is seeking applications from UK companies with project proposals focused on one or both of the following areas:

Manufacturing Diversification: Building new manufacturing capacity in offshore wind by enabling UK businesses with existing capability in adjacent sectors to de-risk existing processes and diversify.

Technology Transfer: Supporting innovative companies to de-risk new technologies, products/services for offshore wind application through testing, validation and/or demonstration.
