Navigating Excellence: The Norwegian – Greek Maritime Innovation Summit


Oriani Hellas is proud to announce a two-day event on March 13-4 at the Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens, where a selection of innovative digital and technological solutions from Norway, Iceland and Greece will be showcased to the Greek Maritime community.

Supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway through the EEA Grants Greece 2014-2021, in the frame of the Innovation, Business Development and SMEs programme, Oriani has selected a group of companies at the forefront of the technology landscape in Norway and Iceland and will bring them to Greece to present in-person.

Companies Participating include: Shipshave, Jotun, Exocy, Teco2030, Yara Marine Technologies, Ascenz Marorka, Shipnet, The Ship AS, Kongsberg, Sayfr, Health4Crew, Dimeq, PaleBlue, ShipMed AS, Seafair.

Topics to be discussed will include: (Day One) Greener Shipping (Vessel Performance & Fuel Optimisation) – how both hardware technology and software can help combat increasing regulatory challenges, as well as achieving the environmental targets set by the IMO; and how can Big Data Management leverage the improving vessel connectivity to add real value, rather than simply adding to the workload of an already stretched workforce, investigating solutions for better data transfer from the crew on- board as well as optimised company data management onshore.
Day Two topics will include Training Optimization – looking at not only how to better engage crew with state-of-the-art methods used in other safety critical industries, but also reviewing how a company’s culture can be improved to avoid future accidents, taking an active rather than reactive approach.

Also Crew Health: focusing on the most important asset within the company, the crew members on board, and ensuring their mental and physical health is managed and protected. Systems can help manage crew health data, better control medical equipment on-board and physically measure the health status of the crew while on the job.

To ensure maximum value for all attendees, the presentations will be followed by panel discussions, as well as break-out sessions for anyone to meet and discuss their specific company interest further with the presenters.
