ISL at the IAME Conference
The International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) Conference was held from September 5th to September 8th, 2023, in Long Beach, California, USA. The theme for this year's conference was "New Realities in the Global Maritime Economy." Researchers and industry leaders explored what was next for the maritime economy in an environment marked by the lingering pandemic, geopolitical conflicts, rapid technological change, and an increasing urgency to address global climate change.
Marija Jović, ISL delivered a presentation titled "A critical assets approach to port resilience" during the IAME Conference, as part of the "Digitization & Resilience" session. In this research, which she co-authored with her ISL colleague Sönke Maatsch, they introduce an analytical framework designed to pinpoint critical port assets. This framework enables relevant stakeholders to prioritize the protection of these assets against various known and unforeseen risks.
