Port City Innovation Hub (PCIH) is a first of its kind innovation support programme for maritime and related industries in the Liverpool City Region.

The programme is aimed at SMEs and start-ups in any business sector wanting to grow and scale their business by introducing new products, services, or processes that could be used in the maritime industry.

The £1.9m project seeks to accelerate innovation and growth within the region’s maritime economy as a forerunner to the opening of the £23m Maritime Knowledge Hub at Wirral Waters.

The programme is led by Wirral Council and jointly funded by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

PCiH delivery partners include Mersey Maritime, The University of Liverpool, Wirral Chamber of Commerce, and international innovation consultancy Rainmaking Innovations.
