Hello there…

…Åsa Burman who brings Lighthouse to Donsö Shipping Meet.

Why are you going there?
– Because the fair, which is held every two years, is the best place to meet relevant players with an interest in the development of sustainable shipping. For two days, the international maritime cluster will gather to network and participate in spontaneous and scheduled meetings.

So where can one find you?
– First and foremost in the Lighthouse booth located in Garden, D05. There you’ii also find my colleagues Louise Warenius and Lars Nicklason and of course – a lot of information about what Lighthouse is doing. Come by and learn more about the Swedish Transport Administration’s industry program Sustainable Shipping or about upcoming projects or pre-studies. You can also raise questions and ideas that can contribute to the continued development of shipping.

You have also been given the opportunity to give a presentation from the stage of the fair.
– Yes, I will tell you a little about Lighthouse and the Swedish research on sustainable shipping.

What is important to address in this context?
– The fact that shipping is facing many major challenges. One is how we should reduce the environmental impact of shipping while maintaining and increasing its competitiveness. This is a huge issue that has gained momentum with the IMO’s goal of halving emissions by 2050.

Will you talk about something more?
– We’ll see. It can be something completely different too.

Finally, what do you hope to bring with you from Donsö Shipping Meet?
– New acquaintances and new participants in our network and upcoming projects. I hope to bring with me some project and development ideas as well. And of course, a sense that the industry is in a positive development and that shipping will be able to help solve the larger sociotal challenges we face.

Check out this fall’s conferences and seminars

Problems getting started after the holidays? Give yourself break and check out this autumn’s most interesting conferences on shipping and transportation. Lighthouse can present a full event calendar.

Right now we can present 23 events. So what should you choose? First of all, you should not miss the conferences and seminars that Lighthouse is organising. On September 17, you are welcome to the Maritime Academy in Kalmar and “Smart sailors” – a day about today’s shipping training programs and how these should and could be developed. One month later, on the 15th of October, we will co-arrange “Inland and coastal shipping – What’s on” together with SSPA. Location: Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg.

Lighthouse has several seminars in progress and also participates in other events. On September 3rd and 4th you´re welcome to visit us at our stand at Donsö Shipping Meet. Our operations manager Åsa Burman will also present how Lighthouse runs the swedish industry programme Sustainable shipping and how industry, society, academia and institutes for research work together on development and innovation within the maritime sector.

Other interesting events that take place this fall are, for example, the international conference “Shipping & the enviroment II” in Gothenburg, the seminar ”Nutida och framtida energikällor inom sjöfart” in Helsingborg and “”Hållbara transporter 2019” in Stockholm.

Don’t have the time or money? Keep in mind that many events are streamed, for example everyone who Lighthouse organizes and “Horizon 2020 Transport info day”.
