Digitalization through Partnerships

Digitalization through partnerships September 12th 9.00 -16.00 in Copenhagen
Digitalization is one of the major buzz words right now, not only in maritime, but across industries. The opportunity space seems overwhelming and with real “game changing potential”, but how do we get started? How do we release the hidden potential of new platforms? We need to move from buzz words and inspiration and get to work. It is no longer a question of IF, rather a question of HOW, WHEN, around WHAT, and with WHO. The aim of this workshop is to answer these questions, but also to prepare the participants for engaging digital partnerships by assessing their readiness and, in the end, engage in one or more pilot partnerships.
As Green Ship of the Future is a network across the industry, we have chosen to focus specifically on digitalization through partnerships. We want to explore the opportunity space of collaborative development between e.g. suppliers and customers towards new digital platforms, services or products and identify partnerships where the players together can create more value for the end user.
So who are we targeting?
Maritime stakeholders, such as ship owners, suppliers, OEMs and class with an interest in engaging in partnerships around digitalization. This is a workshop. We intend to work towards establishing one or more pilot partnerships. This means that participants are asked to prepare for the workshop, but also to show up with a mandate to engage in partnership discussions. Ideally two representatives (where one is at management level) participate.
The event is part of the 3D print project, but does, as such, not have anything to do with 3D print, nor is it restricted to the participants in that particular project. Our 3D print process is, however, one example of how to approach a digital technology and explore new business opportunities through partnerships. With this event, we take a step back and explore how to approach digitalization and the new business models derived by the opportunities that digital technologies provide. We focus on partnerships, because the paradigm shift we face challenges our traditional in-house competences, but also because new ideas may be better developed by entering into partnerships with your suppliers, end-customers or other relevant partners. In short; we want to show how approaching digitalization and digital technologies can be done through partnerships.
