Innovation and skills at heart of 2019 London International Shipping Week
Nautilus has welcomed a focus on maritime innovation and skills in this year’s London International Shipping Week (LISW) with the launch of a new national cluster organisation under the auspices of Maritime UK’s National Regional Councils Committee.
The national maritime cluster will be based on the existing Mersey Maritime not-for-profit model. It will be rolled out within the next 12 months to four new cluster organisations in the Solent, South West, Lowestoft, and Scotland, with other regional centres planned, Mersey Maritime Chief Executive Chris Shirling Rooke said at a LISW press briefing onboard the HMS Enterprise, alongside Canary Wharf’s West India Quay.
The roll-out of the national structure is hoped to create 25,000 new maritime jobs within the next five years across the country.
LISW19 Event Spotlight
The International Chamber of Shipping’s 2019 Conference
ICS will challenge the shipping industry and policymakers to face the reality of powering global trade without the use of fossil fuels in its 2019 International Chamber of Shipping Conference – Setting Course for 2050: Powering Global Trade.
Navigating this passage will require leadership, and engagement beyond the shipping sector. ICS has invited a cross section of experts from other sectors – Science, Economics, Oil & Gas, Finance, Infrastructure and Politics – to engage with the shipping industry in what will be a unique forum for those seeking to shape the future of shipping.
Setting Course for 2050: Powering Global Trade will examine the challenges facing the maritime world as it prepares for the 4th Propulsion Revolution.
