NFAS’ networking event June 2022


08. Jun 2022 – 08. Jun 2022




Powerhouse Brattørkaia


At last week's networking event for NFAS members (June 8th, 2022), key organizations shared news and updates from ongoing projects regarding maritime autonomy. Important discussions also took place, which gave us valuable input for future work.

Norway has established itself as a world leader in developing autonomous and sustainable technologies and solutions for maritime applications. But what is our recipe for success? How far have we come? And what is being done to strengthen Norways position in this field of great economic and environmental potential?

During NFAS’ networking event on June 8, 2022, at Powerhouse in Trondheim, key players shared their thoughts on these and other issues. They gave us updates on ongoing projects and developments regarding maritime autonomous systems and technologies. We also had the pleasure of inviting members to an informal afternoon gathering on June 7 at Maritime Robotics.
