The theme for the event is maritime green growth and how to evaluate related opportunities and bottlenecks. The aim is to combine perspectives, for example, from economics discipline with industry insights, to identify areas that could be further developed in managing maritime decarbonization.
Turku School of Economics (TSE) at the University of Turku has launched a two-year research project aimed at developing green transportation concepts to support the green transition. In the GreenConnect project, potential emission reduction measures in door-to-door transports, including maritime transportation, are examined, carbon dioxide emission calculation models and accuracy are improved, and business potential for green competitive advantage is investigated.

For the Finnish national economy maritime sector is essential via two ways: i) by enabling the transportation of goods for exporting and importing industries and their needs nationally and ii) provision of equipment and technology to global maritime market. Due to statistics standards information on economic acitivity and added value generated by maritime sector is fragmented. TSE research supports to understand what is the impact of maritime sector and it’s business overall. Also regional development aspects and different impact analysis of clusters and subclusters is researched at TSE
For maritime transportation, safety and security are critical necessities globally and also domestic waters with special requirements related to for example narrow fairways and winter conditions. Aiming for high safety culture, continues improvement and preparedness need to be supported. TSE contributes in research that supports to authorities’ collaboration, security of supply or cybersecurity. TSE staff is regularly involved in e.g. commenting and analysing to different regulation or policy proposals.
