This second forum aims at championing innovation to accelerate the transition of the marine sector towards a zero- and low-emission future and will have a special emphasis on inclusive innovation for decarbonization of the maritime sector in the context of the Initial IMO GHG Strategy. The event intends to promote innovation by providing a global platform to exchange best practices and fill necessary gaps by gathering ideas and latest developments from all stakeholders and the need for enhanced cooperation at all levels to support this global transition. The forum will consist of a high-level opening followed by presentations and discussion panels where policy, technology and R&D champions will provide updates and perspectives leading to discussions on innovation and fuel needs for maritime decarbonization and technologies for greener shipping.

The forum will be held on Wednesday, 28 and Thursday, 29 September in hybrid mode, in person at the IMO Headquarters and online in English only. The event will be also streamed on the IMO YouTube Channel and on the United Nations Web TV.
