Maritime@TSE event – Maritime green growth: Evaluating opportunities & bottlenecks

Maritime@TSE research platform at Turku School of Economics (TSE) organizes an industry-academia event on Wed 28th Feb 2024 afternoon.

Decarbonization is bringing vast transformations to the global maritime , but how do we evaluate it in respect to economic growth and its impact on economies? Considering Finland with a high maritime-related industrial base, what will be the our industry’s role in the global development? In this event, both research and industry insights will be included to facilitate discussions and the exchange of views on the topics. The aim is also to incorporate frameworks and methods from economics to illustrate how different impacts could be modeled for e.g. investment analyses and decision-making support.
