About this Blue Forum

Connecting WA’s Maritime Industry with R&D Institutions for maritime energy solutions. 

Together with local partners, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and  DNV GL,  we invite you to join us for a workshop to develop a shared maritime energy agenda. This workshop will provide an opportunity for the maritime industry and R&D institutions to come together with federal organizations to identify maritime energy needs for decarbonization and cross agency/industry collaboration opportunities.

Models and Examples

Discuss the role, and examples of the federal government in supporting innovation

Identify gaps

Facilitated workshop  to identify the gaps between known R&D projects and industry needs

Organize for Success

Discuss the role of the cluster organization and other mechanisms to bridge gaps and identify solutions

Featured Talks & Speakers

 Topics Include:

What are emission reduction measures, what is the challenge and the problem?

Current status of industry regarding IMO goals, Tech/fuel mix, regulatory challenges, etc

What is the priority for innovation in the federal R&D enterprise? What do we do, why do we do it? Why don’t we do certain things? Why does maritime fall through the cracks?

What is the context and philosophy for R&D within industry? What are the priorities? What are the needs?

How do we identify and fill the R&D gaps between Institutions and Industry? What role does the Cluster play?
