A webinar by the IMarEST's Naval Engineering Special Interest Group
About this Event
Innovation in the Naval sphere is driven by international military and industrial competition. Innovation is essential to keeping ahead militarily, but how best to manage it in a world where innovation is perceived as being risky? I will argue it is more risky to not be innovative and discuss some of the means to balance innovation and risk in the context of Naval design and integration.
