Research and development in the Blue Denmark in the coming years will have a solid backing from the Maritime Fund, which has allocated 25 million DKK in support as a concrete follow-up to the Growth Team's recommendations. It creates joy in Danske Rederier.

"The maritime sector is facing a rapid development in these years, which requires that the shipping companies are well equipped and adaptable to continue to be among the world's best," says Anne H. Steffensen, CEO of Danske Rederier.

Blue INNOship has, for example, previously successfully found fuel-saving solutions for Torm and J. Lauritzen using newly developed software solutions. The idea of Blue INNOship II is to strengthen work on big data and digital solutions based on the 'smart ship of the future', which will be characterized by greater automation, autonomous systems, and ultimately the autonomous ship.

"With the idea of 'smart ships of the future', Blue INNOship II will help develop technology, business models and clear regulatory barriers. It requires good effort from universities, institutes, equipment manufacturers and shipping companies. In the Blue Denmark, we have a common interest in maintaining and strengthening cooperation,"says Anne H. Steffensen.

Behind the application to the Danish Maritime Fund stands Maritime DTU, Danske Maritime, Force Technology, the Danish Maritime Authority and Danske Rederier. The 25 million DKK have been made available for activities in a number of specific areas among the recommendations published by the Maritime Growth Team on April 21.
