UTF grant and financial support
If you are studying a subject or working with projects relevant to the subsea sector, you are eligible to apply for a grant or financial support from UTF.
The objective of UTF is to promote increased knowledge of the subsea industry. One of the foundation’s initiatives is to contribute financially to research and development. This is achieved through grants, and also through financial support for research and educational institutions or individuals.
