Florence Maritime Events
The maritime services sector is facing challenges that are similar to those of all other network industries. The Florence Maritime Events are directed at discussing the most recent developments and possible regulatory evolution in the sector, such as the SafeSeaNet, Places of Refuge, and the Reporting Formalities Directives.
The paper “Digital Innovation in the Port Sector: Barriers and Facilitators” (Carlan, V., Sys, C., Vaneslander, T., Roumboutsos, A.) was presented at the 5th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures (24 June 2016), and it was awarded the prize for the best paper. The paper is available for download in the Network industries quarterly, 2016, Vol. 18, No. 3.
Over the years, stakeholders and administrators, as well as knowledgeable academics, have attended the Florence Maritime Events to share their experiences. The increasing role of ICT requires experts from the sector to join the Forums, broadening the scope of discussion and enriching it with their expertise.
