We start the Energy Masterclass with 1,5 hours on the different mobility sectors. After the informative part of the Masterclass, we start with break-out sessions in four groups of six persons. The break-out session will last for an hour and during that time you will work on assignment together with 5 peers and with guidance of one of the experts.

During your registration you can choose if you want to join the assignment in break-out sessions or if you want to sign up for just the informative part of the Masterclass. We only have 24 places for the assignment, so do hurry. First come, first serve.

The KVNR represents 90% of Dutch ships and has high ambitions in terms of the environment and climate. Nick therefore sees it as a nice challenge to convert the bad image of shipping into a positive one by bringing emission-free ships into service as soon as possible.
