Maritime Transformation Programme

The Maritime Transformation Programme (MTP) is a key vehicle to implement the Sea Transport ITM Innovation thrust. It seeks to leverage the National Research Foundation (NRF) Research, Innovation and Enterprise Funds (RIE Funds) to grow maritime R&D capabilities and transform the sector.
