Note: The seminar takes place June 15th, 2018, 08:30 – 12:00 and will be a combination of an internal CBS Maritime researchers workshop followed by an open seminar invitation to external participants.

In the book project Navigating Troubled Waters – Danish shipping 2008-2018 Martin Jes Iversen, Associate Professor at CBS and Academic Director of the B.Sc. program in International Shipping and Trade, together with project research assistant, Jesper Buhl, aim to uncover how four selected Danish shipowners have charted their strategic course in this uncertain and challenging market environment. With the traditional shipping company business model being challenged and reinvented in form of new technologies, disrupted demand, the current challenging geopolitical situation, and so on, gaining insights into Danish shipping gives input as to how national and international shipping companies, might approach future challenges based on lessons from past events. On 15 June they will provide insights into the project as well as the affiliated teaching cases.
Furthermore, the open seminar will also include a presentation by Professor of Economic History at The Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen, Stig Tenold, on his newest book "Norwegian Shipping in the 20th Century".
