Symposium: Looking back from 2050
On Tuesday the 19th February a Symposium will be held. The theme, ‘Looking back from 2050’ is encouraged by Blueprint 2050 of the Nationaal Instituut voor Scheepsvaart en Scheepsbouw (NISS). The attention is focussed on the future of the maritime sector during this anniversary symposium of S.G. “William Froude”, organised at LantarenVenster in Rotterdam.
In a previous symposium of the Niss, scenarios were developed in Blueprint 2050, and three self-contained underlying themes are recognized regarding the maritime sector: Space, Transport, and Energy. Challenges for engineers shall arise to support a substantial growth and their needs.
What the world looks like in 2050, we don’t know with certainty. However, in facilitating a world with a significant population pressure, technological breakthroughs must occur. During the day, specialists will outline their view of 2050, and look back on the journey that brought mankind to this 2050. Was it a narrow path or a wide road?
The day will start at LantarenVenster, and afterwards, it is possible to join a diner.
