Zero Emission Marine’s Annual Seminar

It has been a great journey so far and soon it’s time to reflect what has happened in the Zero Emission Marine ecosystem during the past year and look forward to the future and strengthen the collaboration.

Zero Emission Marine’s first Annual Seminar will be held in Wärtsilä Sustainable Technology Hub (STH) on Thursday 17 November 2022 in Vaasa. The event will also be streamed and recorded. In the seminar we will present some of the highlights and learnings from the ecosystem programme so far, as well as give an opportunity for ecosystem members to pitch ideas for possible ZEM ecosystem projects.

Ecosystem members will receive a personal invitation and registration link to the event. Registration for the event is mandatory whether you are participating in Vaasa or following the event virtually. If you are new to ZEM ecosystem and would like to join the seminar, you can contact zem.ecosystem@wartsila.com.
