15th & 16th November 2022
A two-day online and in-person event at Dublin Castle, the conference brings key national and international leaders together to debate a safe and sustainable route to 2050.
The maritime sector is becoming increasingly complex and decision points on key issues are close at hand. Decarbonisation, alternative fuel types, autonomous systems and ships, digitalisation of navigation and related technology, offshore renewable energy development, and maritime spatial planning are all driving significant changes in our industry. This will present challenges and opportunities for all involved in shipping, ports, maritime infrastructure, safety, regulation, and environmental protection. These issues need to be tackled simultaneously, and in a holistic manner if we are to achieve a safe and sustainable route to 2050.
Irish Lights is a 24/7 maritime safety organisation, operating around the coast of Ireland, north and south. We play an important role in contributing to safe navigation at sea, ensuring compliance with Chapter V/13 of the SOLAS Safety of Life at Sea Convention and responding to dangerous wrecks.
As a key stakeholder in the maritime sector, Irish Lights is acutely conscious that this future can only be delivered by close interconnectivity and collaboration between all the players and dimensions within the sector. That is why we have a particular interest in bringing together a diverse range of key national and international leaders to facilitate this important debate. We invite you to join us for a stimulating and engaging two days on the 15th and 16th of November in Dublin Castle and online.
