Both Finland and Norway aim high when building sustainable maritime innovations through public-private partnerships. How are these innovations set into practice?   

Business Finland and DNV warmly welcome to learn about the current Norwegian and Finnish maritime innovation programs taking place, and their experiences in the past projects.   

The Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment has awarded DNV and its partners a contract to develop a roadmap for the introduction of sustainable zero-carbon fuels across the Nordic region. The “Nordic Roadmap” aims to accelerate the transition to zero carbon fuels by reducing the key barriers to their uptake and creating a platform for cooperation across the region. 

In Norway, the Green Shipping program has set alive many of the Norwegian government’s maritime strategies and plans, and they are preparing now for the next phase of the program.   

In Finland, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment supports Finland’s ambitious sustainable development strategy through tangible projects within maritime industry. Meyer shipyard in Turku tells about their newly started project where the aim is to develop a carbon-neutral cruise ship. 

We will also learn how companies can join these innovation projects – what is required, and what is possible.
