Voeg toe aan agenda

We are proud to invite all partners on the 3rd of July to a fascinating day seminar on Maritime Law & Logistics beyond 2020, with presentations by leading figures in the maritime industry.

While at first, the 2020 timeframe might seem excessively limited, the enormous changes that currently affect the logistics industry make longer predictions very challenging. Indeed, these new developments have arisen a number of questions:

  • What will be the evolution of unmanned transport and platooning?
  • Will blockchains and data pipelines influence data exchange?
  • Will the trend of platformisation and cooperation continue, and what will be its effects on the supply chain?
  • How will environmental and political developments change the logistic cluster?
  • What role will standardization and uniform law play in the industry?
  • What are the legal risks created by these innovations?

In this seminar, key figures from both academia and the industry will reflect on these questions, aiming to provide participants with the tools to face these challenges.

As IMLAW attracts talented students, arbitrators, scientists and maritime companies from all over the world, we like to give the industry the opportunity to present themselves to the public during the whole week of IMLAW. The Hall of the Theil Building at the Erasmus University will transform into an Exchange for Maritime Companies. In order to capture a stand, companies can register. Taking a banner, movie or brochure materials is enough to stand out this week. We have guards keeping an eye on the materials, to control the stock. On Wednesday during the seminar, we expect people in the booth during the breaks for ultimate networking experience. To register your company does not only mean you can join the Seminar on the 3rd of July but also means you can invite three employees to all events which take place this week. Being part of the Industry Exchange gives you access to the full seminar Maritime Law & Logistics beyond 2020, to the academic Conference Transport Law de lege ferenda 2019 and to the Opening on the 30 June and to the evening events from 1 July to 5 July for maximum three people.
