161, Marina Hadjipateras, Founder & General Partner, TMV
Welcome to the 161st episode of the Shipping Podcast, in which you will be listening to Marina Hadjipateras, Founder & General Partner, TMV, an early-stage venture capital fund. Marina is second-generation Shipowners who now is investing in sustainability, shipping, logistics, work and care. She is looking for start-ups interested in the maritime industry but may not understand the business. Examples of companies that Marina has engaged in are Nautilus Labs and Transmute. We discuss what impact the pandemic has had on the maritime industry. Marina thinks that since more people have access to see and understand how the maritime industry works, that has lead to a greater interest in our line of business. The mindset of "don't fix what isn't broken" is gone. Now it's more open ears and hearts interested in listening to new ideas prevalent in the maritime industry. Thank you for listening. I am @lenagothberg on most online channels. Please give me a shout-out and let me know what you think about Marina's view of things.

159 Anthony Day, Blockchain Partner, Global Business Services, IBM Ireland Ltd
During the pandemic, we have seen a crew change crises. Seafarers have not been able to travel between the ships that constitute their workplace and their country of residence due to travel restrictions. High-level meetings have been taking place, aiming to get seafarers designated as "key-workers", which would lead to exemption from specific COVID-related travel restrictions and make it possible for the 200,000 stranded seafarers to become repatriated. Here is a link to IMOs Q and As about the crew change crises. Currently, the next step towards normality is vaccination. The key-workers status would move seafarers up the line in the queue. The next step is how to prove vaccination and clearance for Covid-19 through a negative test. One suggestion is a Digital Health Pass, and that is what this episode is addressing. Meet Anthony Day, working at IBM in Dublin, who focuses on digital health pass and how complicated it can be to get national health authorities to agree on a global standard. Anthony describes how a digital health pass would make the certification easy to show on a mobile device when travelling or entering a sports arena. He explains blockchain technology and gives us insights into the various considerations that have to be considered. Anthony has his own podcast called Blockchain won't save the world if you are interested in the tech behind the digital health pass, blockchain. Thank you for listening!

Welcome to the 151st episode of the Shipping Podcast! Listen to Jan Hoffmann, Chief, Trade Logistics Branch, Division on Technology and Logistics, UNCTAD. "Technical development will never be as slow as today", says Jan and continues to speak about digitalisation and decarbonisation as the two main global trends that we need to follow right now. It leads to a structural change which will bring automation and transparency to the shipping industry and that will make us more resilient for the future. He is also speaking about things that have changed due to Covid-19 and that more people have been given fruit for thoughts by the pandemic. Our behaviour has changed. He continues to point out the fact that it's not export of products that have been affected, it's the service industry that has been hit by the lockdown. Export of services, what can that look like?

145 Harald Solberg, CEO Norwegian Shipowner's Association
In episode 145 you will listen to Harald Solberg, CEO of the Norwegian Shipowner's Association. He speaks about how the shipping industry needs to be bold and set up challenging targets and thereby be part of the solution for a climate-neutral future. Harald is with me on the demand for us to speak about the maritime industry outside our own ranks, we need to become more visible in mainstream media. The International Chamber of Shipping has suggested a fund for technical developments toward a zero-emission shipping industry, along the same lines as the NOX fund, which Harald is very supportive of. Collaboration is the way forward and there are a lot of opportunities in that, especially with other industries. What do you think? I love hearing from you! Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment in social channels, I am @lenagothberg in all of them. Thank you for listening! /Lena
