The NAVAIS project final conference will be held on Monday 30th May 2022 from 13:00 to 17:30 at RDM Next-De Loft at Rotterdam.

Over the last four years NAVAIS has developed a modular design and production approach supported by the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. The approach will increase efficiency in vessel design and flexibility in production networks. NAVAIS has specifically focused on ferries and multi-use workboats. Overall, NAVAIS will allow shorter lead-times, constant quality, reduced design and production costs and better integration of the SME supply chain, thereby increasing competitiveness of the European shipbuilding industry.

During the conference, we will have the pleasure to share with you the main results of the project and how they will impact the future of the shipbuilding industry. Find below the program of this event:
