We are now in the era of Maritime 4.0 – but what is it about and how can you benefit?
Maritime vessels are complex systems that generate and require the utilization of substantial amounts of data for maximum efficiency within a complex supply chain critical to the global economy.
The fourth industrial revolution, with artificial intelligence, big data analyses, and smart autonomous technologies, will have an immense effect on maritime transport. Industry 4.0 is bringing exponential changes to the way we live, work, and relate to one another. But these changes will also apply to how we trade and transport goods.
Crisis push innovation
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digitalization progress and innovation. Even though we also experienced a major disruption in the supply chain, the pandemic also pushed us globally to work remotely, manage a remote business and propel connectivity in shipping.
– This leads to new opportunities and even unexpected collaborations on cross-cutting issues within the total value-chain, Cluster Manager Frode Halvorsen states.
Gemany’s Maritime Agenda 2025 sets out a wide range of measures to be deployed across nine fields of action of the maritime industry. The government also seeks to work with the business community to draw up a roadmap that describes the priorities of their applied research funding programmes and how the innovation capacity of SMEs – which form the backbone of the maritime industry – is to be strengthened.
Solutions and technology for digital and safe shipping
Together with Norwegian-German Chamber of Commerce, the German Ministry of Trade and Industry, and the industrial association VDMA, we invite to a conference focusing on solutions and technology for digital and safe shipping.
