SeaFocus and Navigate 2020
SeaFocus and Navigate 2020 have formed an Associate Partnership in order to co-create an attractive, substance rich and high quality conference event as one of the highlights of the Navigate Maritime Trade Fair in Turku January 22-23.1.2020. The conference in 2020 will at the same time be the Finals of the Intelligence Hunt 6 project, which will focus on the future talents and knowhow which is needed in the maritime industry.
The collaboration between Navigate 2020 and SeaFocus is very active and fruitful, since the first idea meeting December the 31st 2018. From the means of traditional trade fair planning the established partnership collaboration is extremely innovative and modern and goes deeper than just planning a trade fair. Together these organisations want to raise international discussion on the importance of maritime education. As a first concrete means, Navigate has assigned a student team to the Intelligence Hunt 5 to work on a very important issue of how do the European maritime studies and education programmes in different countries and universities match the next 10 years recruitment needs of the maritime industry.
