The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST)

5-7 Nov, at the Spaces at The Spine, Liverpool, UK

About INEC/iSCSS 2024

Now in it's 17th iteration, INEC/iSCSS brings together key stakeholders from across industry, academia and government, providing a platform to share ideas for the designers, engineers and researchers who plan, build, operate, maintain and recycle maritime assets.In 2024, over 300 people from 25 countries will gather in Liverpool for three packed days of discussions, networking and inspiring conversations that will showcase our excellence in the global arena.

Our community coming together has never been more important as we face both digital and green transitions in our society. These challenges increasingly lead to complex ship power systems and bring with it opportunities to develop crew skills through new technologies.

KNVTS ship of the Year Award 2024

Every year, the KNVTS presents the ‘Ship of the Year Award’ and associated challenge trophy. This prestigious award goes to a ship designed and (largely) completed in the Netherlands that is particularly innovative in technical terms. With this award, we promote technical progress and reward the courage to experiment with new developments.
