EXOPRODIGI project’s final event Charting the Course for Sustainability – Baltic Sea region as a front-runner in clean shipping and shipbuilding” was organised online on Tuesday, the 21st of September 2021. The event focused on sustainable shipping and shipbuilding in the Baltic Sea region and the ways digital technologies can be utilised for the benefit of eco-efficient maritime industry. The webinar gave EXOPRODIGI partners an excellent opportunity to share lessons learned and findings of the work done during the past nine months with the wider audience. In addition, the event provided the audience with interesting insight into the outlook of sustainable shipping and shipbuilding, the progress that has been made as well as the challenges still remaining in the Baltic Sea region and beyond.
