Peter Cortie, SRC Netherlands, Board Member

In the maritime supply chain, Estonia can no longer (and should no longer) compete on price. And it doesn't need to, given the supply experience and quality requirements of the Estonian industry. Estonia has sufficient capabilities and skills to automate and digitise the maritime industry. Demand for industrial IT and cyber security expertise is growing. We explore how cooperation with the Netherlands could strengthen Estonia's future position in the maritime industry.
