We are excited to announce that ECOPRODIGI’s next policy session is organised as part of the The Baltic Sea States Subregional Co-operation (BSSSC) Annual Conference 2019 which takes place in Klaipeda, Lithuania on 18-20 September!

The overarching theme of the conference is “Sustainable Maritime Economy – BSSSC regions shaping the future of the Blue economy in the Baltic Sea Region”. Blue economy refers to activities connected to oceans, seas and coastal areas, and it covers a wide range of interlinked sectors. The term is often used in conjunction with blue growth which describes strategies to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors as a whole. This, of course, is something that is right up our ECOPRODIGI alley!

As part of the BSSSC conference, we are organising a policy session titled “Shaping the future of shipping. What is needed to support the Baltic Sea region maritime industry to take the digital leap?”. The session is organised on Thursday, 19 September at 14.00-15-30 and it aims to bring together policy makers and industry representatives from maritime sector to discuss issues connected to the following topics:

  • What is the current state of digitalisation in maritime industry?
  • What does the successful digitalisation of processes require from the maritime industry end-users?
  • What is needed in terms of policy measures, such as regulations and incentives, to support prosperous and sustainable development in maritime industry?

We look forward to meeting you in Klaipeda!
