Maritime logistics

Term of endowed chair at Jacobs University comes to an end

Prof. Jens Froese

Committed, innovative, knowledgeable: Jens Froese has been a Distinguished Professor of Maritime Logistics and Director of the Maritime Logistics working group at Jacobs University, a chair endowed by the Kieserling Foundation, since 2008. Professor Froese's contract comes to an end as planned at the end of 2015. “Our cooperation with Jens Froese has been extremely successful down through the years. He has worked tirelessly to develop both teaching practice and research in the discipline of maritime logistics. In this regard, he has succeeded in attracting prestigious eligible projects funded by the EU to Bremen. He has thus made an outstanding contribution to our city. We would like to thank Professor Froese for his extremely committed and successful contribution”, says Dr. Klaus J. Starke, Chair of the Kieserling Foundation.

One of the projects that Jens Froese coordinated was the EU Green EFFORTS project (“Green and Effective Operations in Ports”). The aim of the project was to investigate how energy can be saved and recovered in port areas, how greater use can be made of renewable energy and how port and terminal staff can be actively involved in climate and environmental protection. Eight partners participated in the project, which was worth EUR 3.2 million. Another European project headed up by Froese was EU-PORTRAItS, which dealt with staffing requirements in European ports up to 2030 and the development of training programmes for port staff.

Jens Froese, holder of a ship master's certificate, began his academic career at HAW Hamburg in 1974. He served as Visiting Professor at the World Maritime University (Malmö, Sweden), Jimei Technical University (Xieman, China), International Copenhagen Business School (Denmark) and other prestigious international universities. As Professor of Maritime Logistics at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) he also established and headed up the Institute for Ship Operation, Sea Transport and Simulation (ISSUS), before moving to Jacobs University in Bremen.
