The IMO-UNEP-Norway Innovation Forum will be held as a two-day hybrid event on 28 and 29 September with live, in-person attendance at the IMO headquarters in London and a virtual global platform available for those who would like to connect online. The forum is aimed at championing innovation to accelerate the transition of the marine sector towards a zero- and low-emission future. The forum will focus on addressing the specific needs of developing countries, especially Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS). IAPH managing director Patrick Verhoeven will join the opening panel of the Forum, discussing how IMO policies can drive the international maritime decarbonisation agenda. The Forum is also linked to the IMO World Maritime Day theme 2022 ‘New Technologies for Greener Shipping’ which is celebrated on 29 September and has a special focus on inclusive innovation for decarbonisation of the maritime sector.
