"Maritime Innovation: Connecting Tech & Talent For Decarbonisation" on 5 March

Updated: Jul 27

How do we attract top tech-talents to break down barriers towards zero carbon shipping? How can policy makers create a smoother runway for adoption of tech whilst the industry defines new sustainable pathways? And are the blue industries really doing enough to leverage on AI, machine learning and other deep-tech solutions to accelerate the green transition?


These are some of the question discussed on 5 March when the Royal Danish Embassy in Singapore and community member SGinnovate invite partners, friends and maritime innovators to zoom in on tech and talents for decarbonisation.

In realisation that the industry is moving too slow on decarbonisation, blue change-makers gather to discuss maritime innovation between Singapore, Denmark and rest of the global fleets. At the event, we discuss joint efforts to orchestrate data sharing, research collaboration and regulatory framework for new talent and technologies to move the blue industry towards a zero-carbon business.


The speakers' line-up consists of:

  • HE Sandra Jensen Landi, Ambassador of Denmark to Singapore

  • Dr Lim Jui, CEO, SGInnovate

  • Dr Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping

  • Kenneth Lim, Assistant Chief Executive (Industry), Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA)

  • Maria Skipper Schwenn, Executive Director - Security, Environment and Maritime Research, Danish Shipping

  • Dr Sanjay Kuttan, Executive Director, Singapore Maritime Institute

  • Tarun Mehrotra, Director, Rainmaking

Everyone is invited to join the session and actively debate new avenues for green transition of shipping and its supply chains. Find more information and sign up here: https://www.sginnovate.com/events/maritime-innovation-connecting-tech-talent-decarbonisation
