Our oceans are more than ever in focus for the quest of securing sustainable and responsible access to food, energy and minerals to serve a growing and healthy world population. Emerging ocean industries will need commercial collaboration platforms to scale.
This conference brings together the maritime industry and the emerging ocean industries to discover common pathways for sustainable development of the ocean space.
How can the ocean industries profit from sharing data, and how can it serve science to sustain ocean health?
Energy & Minerals
How can maritime industry help scale deep-sea mining? Is there a fit between ocean energy and ship electric propulsion?

|"The Danish maritime sector is strong, with world-renowned players, an advanced fleet, leading equipment and service suppliers, and growing digital strength. However, we recognise the need for the industry as a whole to innovate and stay ahead of the curve. With that in mind, we are very interested in collaborating with our Norwegian counterparts, as well as with innovative players from outside maritime industry, to explore solutions for a sustainable blue economy with a thriving shipping sector at its core."|

Norwegian Shipowners’ Association
|"Norway has become a leading maritime nation because of the ability and ambition to constantly explore new opportunities in the oceans.
Cooperation and competition are two key forces to further develop the ocean industries in a sustainable way. We are therefore always looking for initiatives that bring new insight and ideas.
The Opening Oceans Conference is an important initiative in this respect, and we truly look forward taking part and meeting the ocean industry leaders."
For the first time in Nor-Shipping’s 53-year history, Nor-Shipping goes out of Norway. The choice to go to Denmark is logical. These two shipping nations have close business ties but as nations they operate two distinctly different fleets.
When exploring new business opportunities in the ocean industry, the maritime industry needs to create new connections. Therefore, this conference aims to bring Norway and Denmark further together, while at the same time inviting an international audience.
