On the 27 January from 10:00 - 12:00 we are hosting the Home Office for a Maritime Capability (Small Boats CCTC) Industry Briefing. You can find the notice on Contracts Finder here. 

The purpose of the event is for the Home Office to present to the market the Home Office's key operational challenges in securing the UK border in the English Channel from migrants in small boats. And to: 

• Seek industry insight and expertise to solve these challenges; and
• Gain an understanding of experiences elsewhere in the world.

This is an initial briefing event which will be followed in subsequent weeks by:

• The issue of an informal request for information to participants for industry to share their innovative ideas, new approaches and potential solutions which can be legally deployed in the UK;
• Roundtable workshops;
• Innovation discovery exercises; and potentially
• Demonstration days.
