In his remarks, the Rector of ITS, familiarly called Ashari, said that ITS has collaborated with the Danish government in various fields, including maritime, telecommunications, and student exchange. This time, ITS will be involved in the Green Maritime project, including ship design, hybrid/electric ships, and alternative fuels. “With ITS’ focus on maritime and electricity, we are ready to synergize with the Danish government in the Green Maritime project,” he said.

The Danish Ambassador’s interest in ITS as a university focusing on maritime research made him cooperate with ITS to hold a Green Maritime Conference jointly. The conference that carries Green Shipping is planned to be held at ITS at the end of November and officially opened by the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs.
