SFI Smart Maritime Final Conference & FME Maritime Energy Transition workshop

20.Jun.2023 — 21.Jun.2023

This event will be a milestone for SFI Smart Maritime. As the last Network Meeting of the Centre, the conference day 1 will present the main achievements of a successful 8 years of collaboration. 

Looking forward, we still need R&D to support the green transition of maritime sector, with an even broader scope and partnership. On day 2, the Network Meeting will mark the start of this new phase, and build the stage for future R&DI cooperation in a Centre for Environment-friendly Energy (FME Maritime Energy Transition).

Both days are open for all parties interested in participation in the new FME centre proposal.


Venue: Clarion Hotel Trondheim, Brattørkaia 1, 7010, Trondheim
