28 November 2022 - Published by Tom Pauwels

During the Smart Shipping Event 2022, AVATAR Interreg North Sea Region project partners will participate. The event takes place on 1/12/2022 in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht (The Netherlands). AVATAR is one of the sponsoring partners.

Several topics of smart shipping will be adressed including (semi-) autonomous sailing. Effects of autonomous sailing for skippers, inland navigation companies and suppliers will be themes of the event.  

Rudy Negenborn (TU Delft | Mechanical Engineering) and Louis-Robert Cool (SEAFAR) will elaborate on the relation between Smart Shipping and Smart Logistics; also taking into account the lessons learned from the AVATAR project on (highly) autonomous sailing and city freight distribution.

Tom Pauwels and Peter Geirnaert will also be present during the full conference and are looking forward to align with conference participants about the AVATAR-project. You can also meet us at the AVATAR exhibition stand.
