Nor-Shipping – The Disruptive Talks

Oslo

A series of flagship Disruptive Talks will be taking place through-out Nor-Shipping 2017 in the trailblazing Disruptive Sustainability Hall.

These 10 high energy hour-long sessions will focus on high tech topics, shipping’s game changers and the most cutting edge concepts in today’s maritime field.

Each fast paced session focuses on one key challenge within the maritime sector and looks for silo breaking progressive solutions and collaborative change opportunities.

These inspiring sessions are a key part of Nor-Shipping 2017’s Catalyst for Change focus.

The Disruptive Sustainability Hall will be dark and immersive, creating an “Enter the Ocean Space” experience and featuring an intimate Disruptive Room for new insights. This stage is purely dedicated to lectures and talks where you can explore radical technologies and solutions. A fast-track to explore the new toolbox of technologies seen from a maritime perspective, and how you can utilise them in a period where several segments of the maritime industry face strained markets and numeral challenges.

Alongside trailblazers from the world of shipping, the Disruptive Sustainability Hall will feature leading companies and innovations from the wider business world – allowing for sharing of insights and cross-fertilisation of ideas and aiming to engage, provoke, challenge and inspire visitors.

The Disruptive Room is dedicated to the future markets and technologies of the Ocean Industries, this arena will fuel ideas, opportunities and build new mind-sets for an ever-evolving industry.

 

Get disruptive

This year’s Nor-Shipping sees the introduction of a new hall, brimming with new ideas. The disruptive sustainability hall represents the very cusp of the changing face of the maritime sector. For some this is a huge opportunity to bring about industrial change at a level never seen before. For others, this may be too much of a risk, they may even decide to ignore what this hall represents, much like the dinosaurs would have ignored that huge meteor.

Disruption and innovation are not owned by the young and inventive, there are many existing industry layers that see the signs and are early movers. In the maritime and shipping sectors they are emerging, restructuring to become new agile businesses ready to meet the challenges they think the future will bring. We may call them the disruptive dinosaurs, the ones that have the tenacity and drive to evolve and change

These are the companies, new and old, that form the disruptive sustainability hall, and key to that the disruptive talks at the centre of the buzz.

The disruptive talks are hosted by Fathom Maritime and supported by leading companies willing to be seen as self-disruptive. They are 10 focused one hour debates throughout the first three days of Nor-Shipping tackling key issues that many companies, their executives and staff should be asking themselves.

The disruptive talks will take place on the main stage in the Disruptive Sustainability Hall at Nor-Shipping. They will be led and directed by Craig Eason, Editorial Director, Fathom Maritime Intelligence.

Come to the disruption


 

 

DISRUPTIVE OPENING: Tuesday 30th May at 13.00 – 13.15

To officially open the Nor-Shipping Disruptive Talks, DNVGL Group Research and Development Director Pierre Sames will be in conversation with Craig Eason, Editorial Director, fathom-news.comto talk openly about the future of the maritime industry and class form a class perspective.

As the advocates of safe and environmentally sound shipping, classification has a key role in the evolution of digital solutions and how disruptive influences are impacting the industry.

In this key 15 minute discussion Sames and Eason will open the disruptive talks by drilling into what is meant by the increased digitization of shipping and maritime sectors, the impact of the electrification of parts of the industry, and of course the rise of the autonomous ship.

This is not a blue sky conversation about the distant future. This is about NOW and what is driving the industrial evolution that we are all currently witnessing.

 

 

13.30 What Problems Need Disrupting 

What issues are ripe for innovative solutions? Three key factors are at play. New technologies, new attitudes and the same old tired market cycles. Are the factors drawing together to create upheaval that will bring the old-world shipping model to a close and what sort of a model will replace it?

14.30 Why should ship-owners open the door for new players to disrupt it?

Shipping is facing new and potentially disruptive challenges as new companies, and new solutions emerge. How do companies ensure they do not suffer negative disruption, but instead are prepared to embrace the innovation that will enable positive disruption? What are new companies likely to be offering the ship-owners and what changes, technological and commercial, are enabling these solutions?

10.30 Can data create a knowledge loop to enable shipbuilders to replicate aviation’s safety levels?

Can we trust your data? While there is as much talk about who owns the data, the question could be turned around to whether the data is good enough to be shared and then used to improve the industry as a whole. With owners and operators able to collect increased amounts of data, are they able, and indeed wiling, to share the results and allow increased value in the industry? If shipyards and naval architects could, like the aeroplane makers,  gain operational data for an asset‘s life would they be able to make ever better increases in their designs?

13.00 Can shipping really live with blockchain and disruptive finance?

As much as shipping and the maritime sector is facing business upheaval and environmental challenges, its financial and trad mechanism are also being called into question?
Nearly a decade of overcapacity in one sector or another has thrown a necessary spotlight on potential tools that will be the bedrock of industrial revolution. Can today’s shipping model continue as it is? Will blockchain raise the financial trust of new ways of doing business, or will ship-owners and their banks fall back to the relative comfort of “Business as Usual”
