Aalborg University Copenhagen premises (AAU Sydhavn, A. C, Meyers Vænge 15, 2450 København), Copenhagen

Both events are targeted to stakeholders working in and with maritime industry and to everyone interested in the digitalisation of maritime industry. Participation is free of charge.

The objective of ECOPRODIGI’s Future Foresight workshops is to create a digitalisation roadmap to increase eco-efficiency in the Baltic Sea Region maritime sector. In the second workshop we will apply the tools from the strategic foresight toolbox to open up, explore, and map the range of plausible future trajectories. The point of departure will be taken from the 3 ECOPRODIGI cases: Vessel Performance, Cargo Logistics, and Shipbuilding. The activities will build off the work that was started in the first workshop in Klaipeda in October, but participation in the prior workshop is not a requirement.
