The two days’ conference drew a baseline on German and international initiatives and activities in the field of maritime safety and security.
Maritime safety and security is particularly about technologies to secure critical infrastructures and the safety of maritime transport. Furthermore, the sustainable use of the oceans and the exercise of sovereign functions to safeguard coastal and environmental protection are becoming increasingly important. German technology and service providers are at the forefront of excellent technology innovation in the field, serving worldwide customers. Innovation created was based to a large extend on the fruitful co-operation between German industries and research partners.
