Future Ocean innovations

The Arctic maritime industry is a key driver of innovation in transporting people and goods around the Arctic, which provides support for the development of other Arctic industries. It is crucial that this sector’s knowledge is shared with partners who are new to the Arctic. Furthermore, it is also important that technology and knowhow developed for one ocean sector is made available to other sectors and industries.

How can new technology contribute to increased mobility of people, goods and businesses in the Arctic? How can electrification and automation of vessels contribute to safe and sustainable northern business operations, and what are the risks? How can international shipping regulations and ocean strategies support safe and responsible Arctic maritime activity?

Session format: 5-minute introductions followed by armchair conversation
