We are delighted to announce the first ever call for applications to the Sea-Changers Innovation Fund.

The aim of the Innovation Fund is to support innovative marine conservation approaches and solutions.


In 2021, the Innovation Fund will take the form of a single award of £2,000. It is hoped that the fund can be expanded in future years. Sea-Changers will be seeking additional sponsors and donors to enable this.


We welcome applications from all types of organisations, both not-for-profits and companies, who have an idea or a project they believe is a genuinely new and untested solution to the UK's marine conservation challenges.


The closing date for applications is 18th June 2021. 


The founding sponsor for the fund is MRT, a world-leading manufacturer of Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) and marine safety equipment.
