The workshop brought experts from the University of British Columbia, Copenhagen Business School, Simon Fraser University, and KLU together with representatives of blue chip maritime companies such as Teekay, Seaspan Ship Management, and Port Metro Vancouver. They focused on green shipping, looking at the opportunities that the transition to greener shipping can create for the maritime industry and at the research needs in this area. The workshop served as the basis for developing a research cooperation program among the participating organizations.
