Kiel-Gdansk Market Place

Smart Shipping

31 May 2022
10:00 – 19:00 h

Wissenschaftszentrum Kiel, Fraunhoferstr. 13, 24118 Kiel

For the first time, the Kieler Marktplatz, the exchange format of business, science and politics, will be hosted as an international event together with the University of Gdańsk.

The Kiel-Gdańsk Market Place will bring together scientists and business partners from the maritime sector. Both cities are active in promoting future concepts for sustainable shipping: smart shipping in a smart harbour, including autonomous shipping, modern energy systems and harbour logistics. Both cities have excellent scientific research and innovative maritime industry. Kiel as host city will present e.g. the "Clean Autonomous Public Transport Network (CAPTN)", establishing an integrated inner-city mobility chain of autonomous clean modes of transport on water and on land. In addition, the Port of Kiel offers groundbreaking activities like the on-shore power terminal.

This event will

  • promote exchange on scientific evidence
  • support networking between Kiel and Gdańsk
  • provide science and business contacts for future cooperation and commercialization of inventions

The program offers

  • presentations + discussion
  • visits (e.g. Port of Kiel on-shore power terminal; Shipbuilding-Streaming lab)
  • reception
