Introduction

Today, governments around the world invest increasingly in their naval forces. From surface ships and submarines to smaller drone ships; new solutions that smarten maintenance or increase the safety of personnel. Throughout history, governmental organisations and dedicated defence corporations have been the driving force behind important breakthroughs. Innovations that crossed the boundaries of the naval sector and proved tremendous value for commercial shipping. How about the future?

Why should I attend?

In this Europort Masterclass, experts will share their vision on innovation in the naval sector. How do companies innovate for the naval sector? What are the latest developments? And how can naval innovations inspire the commercial shipbuilding and shipping industry? During the network reception you will have the opportunity to interact with these experts and other attendees.

Who should attend?

Representatives of maritime safety and security organisations, naval defence, shipyards or key suppliers for onboard systems and equipment.

Such as innovation managers, R&D specialists, business developers, researchers, engineers, naval architects, shipyard project managers, maritime suppliers, class societies and policy advisors of regulatory bodies.
