8th November 2022

NHH Shipping Conferenece - Leadership 2022

The NHH Shipping Conference has long been regarded as an important meeting point for shipping-related business, decision makers in the «blue economy» and academia.

In cooperation with The Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen Shipowners’ Association and Maritime Bergen, “The NHH Shipping Conference – LeaderShip” is goig live on the 8th November!

This year’s theme is «Back to the Future,» where we use our knowledge to set sail into the future. Together we raise the agenda on how politics and power play influence our investment and technological decisions. A day where we ask what we can do with the assets and resources we have enroute 2050, one step at a time.

09:00 - 10:45
Part 1. The new normal

We find ourselves in a new time with fundamental changes.  Changes that effect and cause uncertainty and challenges for Norway and our industry. Geo-political decisions and technological changes that affect the discussion from the board and throughout the organization. For years there has not been business as usual, but what is the new normal?


  • Introduction and a warm welcome by Maritime Bergen and Bergen Shippowners Assosiation
  • Global prospects in the new normal, Øystein Thøgersen, Professor and Rector, NHH
  • Adapting to the new maritime security environment - Rune Andersen, Rear admiral - Chief of the Royal Norwegian Navy

10:45 – 11:05
Coffee break & mingling
11:05- 12:15
Part 2. My ship is loaded with green ambitions?

Amidst soaring inflation, continuous supply chain disruptions and an urgent energy security crisis following the Ukraine war, are shipping emissions still a priority for the shipping industry’s stakeholders?  Or is the uncertainty of which fuel to choose, and the cost of shifting, too big to handle?

Are financial institutions still in their same change agent mode? And how important is the cashflow for new investments.

We have invited several key stake holders to give an update on our decarbonization journey, where we will also learn more about possible new solutions from known technology such as carbon storage, thorium and nuclear. The question is whether we need to think outside the box regarding our “green ambitions” to reach our set goals for 2030 and 2050, or if our set strategy is good enough.

  • When Realpolitik meets green shipping - Roar Os Ådland,Professor, Norwegian School of Economics
  • My ship is loaded with green ambitions – from a banks’ perspective - Marthe Lamp Sandvik, First VP DnB Energy Transision
  • Artificial intelligence for port storage tracking - A conversation with Pål Gunnar Ellingsen, Associate professor within satelite technology and remote sensing, UiT, The Arctic University of Norway

  • Research project Molten Salt Reactor - Jan Emblemsvåg, Professor Department of Ocean Operations and Civil Engineering, NTNU
  • Shipdesign and building - green or crazy? Tore Ulstein, Chair Ulstein Group
  • Is there a political hick-up? A political discussion
14:30 - 14:50
14:50 - 15:45

Grand Terminus

Grand Hotel Terminus is one of five hotels in the chain De Bergenske. This is not an ordinary chain of hotels and restaurants; it is owned and managed by a family genuinely local to Bergen – a familiy with a love for the city and  long-term vision. Set in the heart of the city centre, getting to and from the hotel is also straightforward as the city light- rail , Bergen railway station, and ByGarasjen car park are all close by.


If you need accomodtion please contact Grand Hotel Terminus, see contactinformation under.
