Young RMSC is organizing together with NIBC Bank and YoungShip a part of ShipCon 2021, a conference for young professionals in the maritime industry. It is an initiative from YoungShip and this year, the event will take place in Rotterdam.
The main themes are digitalisation and technology, the energy transition and diversity. The event will be a hybrid form spread over five evenings between 19 October and 2 November. On 5 November, the final session will be live from Europort in Rotterdam with interesting speakers.
The event consists of two elements: a conference element with more than 30 speakers from the maritime industry and a hackathon element where participants will try to solve sustainability cases in groups. The hackathon element of Shipcon, offers participants the opportunity to work together on one of the three designed cases.
There is a case on sustainable ports, a case on sustainable shipbuilding and a case on financing sustainable ships. Young RMSC members Thomas van Oorschot, Azimjon Rakhimov and Roel Schillings designed a sustainable finance case, whereby teams will compete against each other. Michael de Visser, over 20 years of ship finance experience, will challenge the pitches.
