The third conference of the Nordic Roadmap was held in Reykjavik, at Nautholl. About 70 participants from different companies and organizations from all over the Nordics were gathered to get a status update on the project deliverables so far, gain new insights, share knowledge, establish connections, give input from relevant Icelandic stakeholders to the Nordic roadmap strategic document, and recruit contributors to the green shipping corridor pilots in the Nordics. The workshop was followed by a networking dinner at Fosshotel Reykjavik.

The purpose of the conference was to give status update on the project delivery so far and get input on the development of the strategic Nordic Roadmap, as well as facilitate partnerships throughout the Nordic maritime cluster and share insights on the needed transition towards sustainable zero-carbon fuels. The Nordic collaboration platform is the cornerstone to drive the Nordic fuel transition and develop a common roadmap for the uptake of sustainable zero-carbon fuels in the Nordics – and for the realization of intra-Nordic green shipping corridors.
