Programme for ShippingLab conference
On August 30 ShippingLab will present learnings and results from the work within Decarbonization, Autonomy and Digital Ship Operations, which were conducted by more than 40 partners in more than 20 projects.
At the conference, ShippingLab will also present the themes and activities we are going to focus on going forward. The headline for this is: ShippingLab – Green transition of the Blue Denmark by focusing on digitalization, decarbonization and safety, and we will present our planned activities and invite stakeholders in Blue Denmark to be involved in ShippingLab.
Further, we are hosting panel sessions, where industry experts discuss challenges and possible ways forward within decarbonization, autonomy and digital ship operations,
Finally, we are happy to announce that we will be having a keynote delivered by the Secretary General from Waterborne Technology Platform, Jaap Gebraad, which is a key organisation within research and development opportunities within the EU.

|Presentation of results and learnings from ShippingLab’s activities on decarbonization
|Panel session: How does biofuel fit into the fuel mix for shipping and what considerations must be made as shipowner in relation to present fuel mix and future possibilities ?
|The panellists will have an open discussion about both the role of biofuel as part of the road to decarbonization of shipping, but also a discussion about other means to decarbonizing the industry.
The panel is moderated by Henrik O. Madsen, former CEO for DNV-GL and consists of:
|Presentation of results and learnings from ShippingLab’s activities on autonomy
|Panel session: What areas need to evolve if solutions within autonomy are to develop further ?
|Is Blue Denmark well-positioned to gain advantages from autonomy or are the uncertainties surrounding the field causing us to miss the boat?
Autonomous systems and autonomous vessels are much more complex than just the technology. In the panel session the state of maritime autonomy will be discussed focusing on topics such as

|Keynote by Jaap Gebraad, Secretary General for Waterborne Technology Platform
|Waterborne in an industry-oriented Technology Platform focus on establishing a permanent dialogue between all waterborne stakeholders, including shipbuilders and maritime equipment manufacturers, and the EU Institutions, including Member States.
Waterborne Technology Platform contributes to the widest possible consensus on R&D and develops medium- and long-term R&D Visions and a Strategic Research Agendas aiming at contributing to the EU’s ambitious policies, such as the European Green Deal, and societal challenges.
Digital Ship Operations
|Presentation of results and learnings from ShippingLab’s activities on Digital Ship Operations
|Panels session: What has ShippingLab achieved within digitalization of ship operation and what can be achieved ?
|Digitalization is seen as the great enabler for more efficient vessel operation, but how much impact can we realistically anticipate through this path?
This will be discussed by the panellists which represent different approaches to digitalization, i.e., a physics-based approach and a data-driven approach.
The panel is moderated by Niels G. M. Rytter, Head of Section and Associate Professor from University of Southern Denmark and consists of:
