The Norwegian University for Science and Technology's Japan Programme would like to invite you to the 2010 Japan seminar: "Ties that bind: Shipping between maritime powers Norway and Japan".

This year's seminar will include the following highlights:

  • An overview of Norwegian and Japanese cooperation in ship technology and commercial shipping links.
  • Norwegian and Japanese research and development of low/zero CO2 emission ships using renewable energy, and other means.
  • Potential for cooperation and competition between Norway, Japan, and also China in securing the Sea Lanes of Communication (SLOCs) from piracy and other threats. As the number of failed states increase, piracy is also likely to increase making cooperation more important.
  • Will a new and much shorter Arctic Sea route between Japan and Europe via Norway soon open up?
  • Whither whaling in Norway and Japan?

Free lunch and coffee.
