International Web-Seminar:

"OCEAN TECH 2020 -  Facilitating increased bilateral collaboration between Germany and Norway"

am Donnerstag, den 26. November 2020, von 09:00 bis 12:30 Uhr

The Ocean Industries are of great importance for value creation in Norway and Germany. Some of the world's most high-tech vessels sail under Norwegian and German flags and are built and equipped at Norwegian and German shipyards, with equipment and technology from Norwegian and German suppliers. Both countries are dependent on offshore energy production and are in the process of building up valuable expertise and positioning themselves for significant production of either bottom-fixed or floating offshore wind in the years to come. Several visions are currently being developed for the role that the North Sea and the Baltic Sea will play towards 2050 in order to be able to contribute to achieving the climate goals in the Paris Agreement and in the EU's climate policy. 

Discussions about developing the North Sea as a hub for hydrogen production or transport based on either renewable wind power or CO2-purified natural gas are prominent in both countries. Both countries also have an interest in developing a predictable framework for the extraction of minerals on the seabed, which is expected to be an important future industry. At the same time, the need to initiate ambitious measures to prevent plastic waste, pollution and destruction of marine ecosystems is increasing. 

In short, there is both a need for and opportunities for increased bilateral cooperation on the development and management of the ocean space, and the opportunities will probably only increase in the years ahead.
