Consultancy and research
After founding in October 2021, they quickly found traction and opportunities working with Northeast based maritime operators and partnering with global tech companies including NVIDIA through their inception programme. They are working with the Net Zero Industry Innovation Campus (NZIIC) run by Teesside University, and funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)*, which aims to support Tees Valley SMEs to develop net zero capabilities and opportunities.
To develop novel machine learning solutions to the emissions crisis the maritime sector currently faces and achieve net zero. To decrease the harmful CO2 emissions put out by ports worldwide through better analysis methods along with innovative prediction and prevention technology.
The solution will be in line with the UK governments Maritime 2050 strategy that aims to make the UK a global leader in the maritime sector and promote clean maritime growth.
The project will be achieved through a research collaboration between SeerBI and Teesside University academics and researchers, working with real industry data to develop the innovative research. The project will work with UK maritime stakeholders to test and develop the research as the project progresses. SeerBI will then seek external funding to take the project forward from the research into a real-world application to be applied in ports around the globe.
The collaboration will output novel machine learning algorithms and data analysis methods focused on the analysis and prediction of CO2 output specifically in ports. This analysis and prediction will help ports understand their environmental impact better and what they can do to prevent future damage.

We are very excited to begin this research opportunity with Teesside University and do our part in making Net Zero in maritime a reality, a goal our entire team is excited about. The value of machine learning and analytic capabilities have already been well researched and applied in manufacturing and many engineering disciplines, but it is maritime’s turn to take the stage
This project is part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government, securing £300m investment.
The project will make a major contribution to the ambition of the ERDF Competitive Programme 2007-13 and by increasing the numbers and survival of business start ups in the region and increasing business productivity.
