Abstract [en]

Ports play pivotal role in the global supply chain network. To strengthen the ports’ business and to keep up with the overall economic development of the country, the port stakeholders have started to invest in the digital technologies. The ports as well as the individual municipalities in Europe are in contest with other ports within the region. One of the competing factors is that of the port’s technological development. Unlike large ports, the small ports within Europe, for example Port of Karlskrona, Port of Wismar or Port of Klaipeda, which also serve as crucial nodes within the trade flow for Sweden, Germany and Lithuania respectively, lack the knowledge and tools to leverage the potential of digital technologies. The digital disruption at ports is inevitable!

With that being established the scope of the project - South Baltic Small Ports as Gateways towards Integrated Sustainable European Transport System and Blue Growth by Smart Connectivity Solutions – or Connect2SmallPorts project is to understand how to facilitate small and medium ports of the South Baltic region with the digital technologies - Blockchain and Internet of Things. During the project lifetime (2018 to 2021) the main goals are to perform the digital audit of small ports of the South Baltic region; to prepare an implementation strategy for Blockchain and Internet of Things specifically for the small ports in the South Baltic region and to conduct an evaluation of the proposed strategies. The project correspondingly aims to disseminate the knowledge and experiences through research publications, industrial conferences and international tradeshows.

Abstract [sv]

Connect2SmallPorts är Östersjöprojektet som stöttar utvecklingen av hamnar i södra Östersjön/Baltikum. Syftet är att hjälpa till med digitala lösningar och därigenom ge utveckling och konkurrensfördelar. Den 17 oktober kommer Mahwish Anwar, PhD från BTH Computer Science vid Blekinge Tekniska Högskola och berättar om projektet.

OBS! Presentationen och Kunskapsfrukosten kommer att genomföras på engelska.

Hamnar spelar en avgörande roll i det globala leverantörsnätverket. För att stärka hamnarnas verksamhet och hålla jämna steg med landets övergripande ekonomiska utveckling har hamnaktörerna börjat investera i digital teknik. Hamnarna och de enskilda kommunerna i Europa tävlar med andra hamnar i regionen. En av de konkurrerande faktorerna är hamnens tekniska utveckling. I städer som Karlskrona, Wismar och Klaipeda, vars hamnar fungerar som avgörande noder för ländernas handelsflöde, saknas kunskap och verktyg för att utnyttja den potential som finns med digital teknik. Projekt som Connect2SmallPorts kan därför med hjälp av införandet av digital teknik som Blockchain och Internet of Things underlätta för små och medelstora hamnar i Södra Östersjöregionen för sin framtida utveckling med ökad konkurrenskraft och effektivisering.
