Revolutionizing Maritime Shipping with Mathematics

The highly anticipated «IE-RSME Workshop on Applied Mathematics in Sustainability and Climate Change» took place yesterday, bringing together academia and industry experts to discuss the application of mathematics in addressing environmental challenges. This workshop, organized by the Royal Spanish Mathematical Society (RSME) in collaboration with IE School of Science and Technology, showcased the strong commitment of both institutions to advancing the field of mathematics in sustainable development.

The lineup of speakers at the «IE-RSME Workshop on Applied Mathematics in Sustainability and Climate Change» was truly impressive, covering a diverse range of topics related to sustainability and the application of mathematics. Professor Marian Scott from the University of Glasgow discussed the role of a digital earth in achieving net zero, nature conservation, and sustainability. Ricardo García Herrera, a renowned atmospheric scientist, delved into the physical basis of climate change and the latest climate data. Marta Enesco Garrido, a senior data scientist, highlighted how advanced analytics can make a sustainable impact in the utilities sector. Roberto Mínguez Solana, a civil engineer and applied mathematician, presented the use of artificial intelligence for smart water management systems. Lastly, Vincenzo Nava, a senior researcher in offshore renewable energy, showcased the importance of mathematics in the sustainable development of offshore wind energy. Together, these talks demonstrated the crucial role of mathematics in addressing environmental challenges and fostering a sustainable future.

The impressive lineup of speakers at the «IE-RSME Workshop on Applied Mathematics in Sustainability and Climate Change» was complemented by Professor David Gómez-Ullate Oteiza, a renowned expert in Applied Mathematics and CEO of Canonical Green. His presentation focused on their groundbreaking work in optimizing maritime shipping routes through the innovative Green Navigation system. By employing mathematical optimization algorithms and advanced data analytics, Green Navigation charts efficient and eco-friendly shipping routes, aiming to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This aligns with the workshop’s overarching theme of leveraging mathematics to address environmental challenges and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations.

In a world increasingly conscious of climate change and sustainability, Green Navigation’s innovative approach and commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of maritime transportation position it as a catalyst for positive change. By leveraging mathematics and embracing the insights shared during the workshop, Green Navigation continues to pave the way for a more sustainable and ecologically responsible shipping industry.

Join us on this transformative journey as we chart a greener course for the future of maritime navigation with the power of mathematics and sustainability at our core. Together, we can create a more sustainable and resilient world for generations to come!
