The Danish Maritime Authority and IALA hosted the e-Navigation Underway conference for the eighth time. During the two-day conference, the possibilities of new technology and digitalization were the topic of conversation. More than 150 participants from five continents attended the conference.

"We must understand and be faster to take advantage of the technological possibilities. The curve for technological development is so steep that we as humans don't know how to handle it. We have concerns about the effects of the technology. Our task is to adapt to it much faster. This requires education and new ways of working together, "said CEO of DFDS Niels Smedegaard, who among others spoke at the conference.

Some of the topics that were discussed at the conference included the possibilities for simplifying shipyard reporting through digitization and cyber security, and how coastal areas tasks in the future can be solved using digital aids through collaboration globally.

"Many of us would like to speed up the process of digital harmonization in the relevant international areas and discuss cyber-security standards. We have the technology, the industry is ready and it is time that we all begin to deliver concrete and real results that can make a difference in the real world, "said the Director of Maritime Authority Andreas Nordseth.

In numerous countries, both authorities and private institutions have expertise in developing digital tools for shipping, but it is often solitary solutions and cooperation across countries or digital systems, which prevents greater knowledge of the best solutions.
