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?

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?
