Prof Richard Clegg, the Foundation's Managing Director, presented a lecture, First to be 2nd – The application of emerging technologies to saving lives at sea, at the annual lecture event held by the University of Southampton and the RNLI on 2 December 2015.
The University of Southampton and the RNLI hold an Annual Lecture at Southampton University as part of their Advanced Technology Partnership. The ATP involves active research projects in engineering and sponsored students in Ship Science. The Annual Lecture has become one of the most prestigious in the University’s Calendar. Each year a speaker is invited to deliver the lecture, which is based upon their own work that has focused on safety and engineering around the marine or maritime sectors.
