At the event, you can take part in the Liner Shipping Game with other junior researchers from the network, which gives you the unique opportunity to simulate and experience how a modern container shipping line or supply chain works.

During the game, the team will take responsibility for core commercial and operational tasks of a container shipping line or supply chain, including optionally vital terminal and vessel stowage tasks. Through teamwork, they can maximize carrier profitability and sustainability which they are measured on. Each player gets to try different roles in the shipping line or supply chain by rotating and collaborating closely with other team members.

Program:

10.00 Introduction and game start with coffee and light breakfast 
10.00-12.00 Game
12.00-13.00 Lunch

13.00-16.00 Game and wrap up discussion

There is a limited number of spots on the day, so secure your participation by signing up before September 1st 2024. 

The MRA PhD network brings maritime PhD fellows together and introduces them to the ongoing development in academia and industry via guest lectures, company visits, seminars, social events, etc.
