CMMI participated at an online workshop on the Current Technology Trends and Challenges in Shipping

On October 15th CMMI participated at an online workshop on the Current Technology Trends and Challenges in Shipping organized by the Blue Lab of the Municipality of Piraeus and coordinated by Professor Nikolaos Ventikos of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).

The workshop addressed the Current Technology Trends and Challenges in Shipping.

During the workshop, CMMI’s CEO, Zacharias Siokouros presented the CMMI as a successful example of what can be achieved when a maritime cluster works together for a common Vision and continued on the current technology trends and challenges in shipping by making special references to decarbonization, digitalization, autonomy, maritime human element and the regulatory environment describing them as both challenges but also opportunities for the young people and entrepreneurs to engage for employment and innovation. The next presentation was by Monika Andreou, Administration Officer at CMMI, who presented to the online audience the current skill needs for a successful career in the maritime sector and outlined the work done in the context of two relevant EU funded projects, the “MENTOR” – completed in 2018 – and the “Sea of Experience” where CMMI is one the partners.
