What is Innovation Camp about?
All eyes are on South Korea where the Danish delegates and South Korean hosts are part of InnovationCamp taking place in Busan, one of the world’s largest hubs in East Asia.

Innovation Camp is a two-day seminar, where representants of both countries are developing maritime services, innovation and establishing cooperation and potential future partnerships with companies and research institutions.

The Maritime InnovationCamp is presenting some of the key results from the EfficianSea2 project led by the Danish Maritime Authority. The overall aim of the EfficienSea2 project is to create and implement innovative and smart solutions for efficient, safe and sustainable traffic at sea through improved connectivity for ships. 


The Innovation Camp was open today by the Danish Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, Brian Mikkelsen. The participants had an opportunity to hear about the new maritime solutions and the way forward regarding implementation within maritime digitalization and eNavigation.
