Blueprint 2050

The maritime world beyond the horizon

Inspired by the centenary of NISS (the national institute for shipping and shipbuilding), over sixty Dutch maritime professionals got together over the past year to discuss the future of the maritime sector. Four working groups brainstormed on future maritime scenarios, ship modes concepts and systems, design and production processes, and maritime domains and innovative developments. As people are not used to looking so far ahead, the meetings were inspirational and dynamic, resulting in new future perspectives for all who participated. The results of the meetings are reflected in the magazine Blueprint 2050, the maritime world beyond the horizon. The magazine (Dutch and English version) can be downloaded from
