Recruitment and Retention - Cultural Differences & Life Onboard

This session explores the issues with recruitment and retention and dives into various aspects of crew diversity, including gender representation, global recruitment, labor shortages, cultural disparities, bullying issues, and the importance of providing recreational and inspiring accommodations for crew members.

MODERATOR:
Perle Møhl, Associate Professor, Centre for Maritime Health and Society, University of Southern Denmark 

SPEAKERS: 
Suneeti Bala, Co-founder of International Women Seafarers Foundation
Diversity / Competence – Myths and Truths 
Suneeti Bala is the co-founder of International Women Seafarers Foundation which works towards increasing the participation of women seafarers in shipping and providing a good work environment for them. In this presentation she will talk about some of the myths and truths relating to diversity and competence.

Emilie Posniak Hansen, Architect, OSK Design 
Crew Living – A home away from home
Seafarers spend a substantial amount of time in small communities isolated out on the ocean. They face all sorts of challenges when sailing, maintaining, and living on the vessels, which in fact is their second home. How can we improve this home away from home to ensure improved cooperation, crew comfort and a happier crew?

Helene Pristed Nielsen, PhD, DEI advisor to the Royal Danish Navy Command
Navigating by principles of equity and inclusion 
The Danish Armed Forces in general have seen a remarkable increase in the number of women volunteering for initial military training. But when it comes to employment as professional soldiers, the number falls drastically. The talk briefly presents a few initiatives the Navy is currently pursuing in order to increase our attractiveness and retention for all staff groups.

Momoko Kitada, Professor, Head, Maritime Education & Training, World Maritime University (SE) 
Will the same strategy work in the promotion of women seafarers and the one of LGBTIQ+ seafarers?
With the 18-year research experience of gender issues in the maritime sector, Professor Kitada explains the commonalities and differences in promoting women seafarers and LGBTIQ+ seafarers. The presentation introduces new initiatives of increasing diversities in the maritime sector and discusses the role of maritime education and training.

Lisa Loloma Froholdt, Senior Researcher, Head of Research Unit, Centre of Maritime Health & Society, SDU, Denmark
Using an Occupational Safety and Health approach to address bullying, violence and harassment at work as a robust recruitment and retention strategy
Following instances of bullying and harassment on Danish-flagged ships, the Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs asked the Danish Maritime Authority for an investigation to clarify the problems. On behalf of the Danish Maritime Authority, the CMSS/University of Southern Denmark investigated the extent on Danish ships. Based on a high prevalence of bullying, harassment and violence in the fleet, this presentation addresses these issues by proposing some hands-on action points that can contribute to both the needed retention and recruitment in the Danish fleet.

Lene Kromand, formerly SIMAC (now OUH, Odense University Hospital)
What do women want? 
Females rarely apply to the jobs at sea or other jobs we, as a community, identify as masculine. Is it because males are better at technique, wiser, think smarter, and are stronger than females, or do females simply have other wishes for their jobs and educations than males do?

Nuclear - Drivers & Barriers

IMO strive to reach net-zero GHG emissions from shipping around 2050. Nuclear power, including molten salt reactors (MSRs), is also under consideration. In this session we will explore barriers and enablers for applying nuclear power for maritime propulsion including technological development, rules and regulations, risk assessments, ship design, life-cycle assessment, and public opinion. From this outset, we will be discussing nuclear power’s potential role in decarbonizing international shipping.

Digitalization and Maritime Security

Development of digital tools poses both opportunities but also new risks for the maritime industry. The integrity of GPS signals is compromised, causing chaos and Black Ships pose a new threat. In this session, we will address the advancement of digital technologies and discuss pros and cons
Since digitalization is continuously reshaping the maritime shipping industry, this session delves into the transformative effects of digital technologies on maritime operations and security. We explore how innovations such as big data, IoT, and generative AI are not only optimizing shipping logistics and operational efficiency but also presenting new challenges and opportunities in securing our maritime capabilities.

SPEAKERS:
Grant Hunter, Director, Standards, Innovation & Research, BIMCO  
Using AI for leaner, cleaner, and smarter charter parties
Preparing a signed charter party is good governance, but is increasingly seen as a “task without value”. It is a time-consuming and laborious manual task often eventually completed long after the voyage has been completed. To help make the process faster and more efficient, BIMCO is developing AI tools to “re-imagine” the charter party for 21st-century shipping.

Hans Anders Pedersen, Pilot & Instructor, DanPilot
Navigation and pilotage under conditions with unstable GNSS and AIS signals 
Now and then, we are experiencing significantly changes in navigation like phasing out of traditional analogue ways of navigation, how can we as pilotage providers handle the challenges and risk, we face in relation of unstable GNSS and AIS signals?

Katja Egemose, SIMAC 
Preparing for GPS failure
The once infallible GPS has revealed flaws and inaccuracy caused by human and AI interference. This session will discuss how navigating officers are taught to prepare for GPS failure

Mette Bennedsen, SIMAC

Christian Hendriksen, Ass. Professor, Copenhagen Business School
Generative AI in the Maritime Sector: A Transformative Technology or A Waste of Time?
We have entered the Age of AI, but what does this mean for the maritime sector? In this short presentation, Christian Hendriksen outlines the contours of what the 4th Industrial Revolution may mean for maritime firms and professionals.

Henning Heiselberg, Head of Security DTU, Senior Scientist, DTU Space 
DTU does research on maritime surveillance from space to seabed. We use AI for analysing satellite imagery, anomaly detection, acoustic signals from seabed optical fiber sensors, etc. As a result we monitor Dark Ships and Critical Infrastructures.

Fredrik Lindblom, Desk officer, Ministry of Defense (SE)
Resilience of digital infrastructure in the maritime domain  
 the need to protect infrastructure used for digital information from the security perspective 
– the need for close cooperation and coordination between government, industry and private sector.

Underwater Radiated Noise - Challenges & Solutions

In January 2023 the IMO Sub-Committee on Ship Design and Construction (SDC 9) agreed on draft revised Guidelines for the reduction of underwater noise from commercial shipping in order to address adverse impacts on marine life. This session explores the challenges, possibilities, and solutions related to marine life and the environment. It highlights the effects on marine life, damage to the environment, and the importance of rules and regulations in addressing these issues.

SPEAKERS:
Joseph Praful Tomy, MAN Energy Solutions / DTU Construct & Max Steden, MAN Energy Solutions 
As a system provider, MAN Energy Solutions takes the responsibility for URN by including the simulation of acoustic noise generation and the prediction of noise radiation into the design process. This implies to look at the entire propulsion unit as a holistic system of interacting components affecting all kinds of emissions.

Long-term Environmental Sustainability in Shipping

While facilitating global trade with immense economic significance, maritime shipping also poses substantial environmental challenges to the ocean’s ecological equilibrium. It is about more than just reducing carbon emissions – this session will address the various elements that comprise long term sustainability in shipping looking at minimizing air and water pollution and promoting ecological balance. Additionally, green financing can play a crucial role in supporting these efforts.
