BREMEN. For 14 years now, experts have been commenting at the “Bremen Shipping Congress” on the current challenges faced by maritime human resources management . The event (here an archive image from 2019) took place for the first time in early December as an exclusively virtual event. Four cross-industry workshops addressed the topics of gender equality in the maritime industry, securing young talent, international training concepts and the importance of digitisation for on-board operations. Another highlight of the event were the prizes awarded by Claus Brandt, Managing Director of the German Maritime Centre (DMZ) in the “Outstanding Academic Maritime Teaching” competition. These went to Professor Daniela Schwerdt, Professor Michael Thiemke and Ann-Kathrin Lange. The idea behind the competition is for us to promote academic maritime teaching in Germany, increase the visibility of the teaching subjects and support the exemplary commitment of the teaching staff to the teaching and the students, and by doing so strengthen Germany’s maritime future in its diversity,” states Brandt.
