Industrial Session 1.2 

Topic: Interdisciplinary Maritime Practice Workshop (IMP) - Instrument against Adversity

Co-organizer: Institute of Seatransport, Hong Kong Logistics Management Staff Association

A brief introduction of the Interdisciplinary Learning & Interlink (IDL/ILI) Methodology (IDLIM) as applied to Maritime Practice on both the micro and macro level, and how the IMP is applied by experts in each profession of maritime practice in resolving problems. The IDL/ILI Methodology is modeled after the Renaissance polymath ideal of being learned in the "Arts, Letters & Sciences".

A panel of professionals will be formed, and four of them from the core professions of shipowner & shipmanagement, marine insurance, legal service, and shipbroking, will make a quick presentation of 10 minutes in respect of the changes in their professions since 2018 to the present, and how their profession views the future in the aftermath of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the ensuing Greater Depression (as distinct from the Great Depression 1929), and changes in global political economic landscape like the Ukraine War. They will engage all participants of the session in an open forum discussion in an illustration of the application of the IDLIM, in a synthesis of theory and practice.
