Following a call for projects under the EU-FP7 research scheme, the SAFEPEC project has started during 2014. Under the coordination of GLINTT INOV, 3 academic partners (TUM, NTUA and WMU), 2 research partners (SINTEF-MARINTEK and TNO) and industrial partners (DNV-GL and IHS Global Insight) aimed at research and develop of an innovative risk based framework supported by cutting-edge maritime inspection technologies. This project will contribute towards the harmonization of audit, inspections, causalities data-sources and from intelligent sensors installed onboard for monitoring and predicting failures in critical ship areas and systems. With new technologies and probability based risk models, our researchers’ consortium creates innovative ready-to-use techniques making ship inspections on safety more reliable – and cheaper. The project promotes proactive safety and develops a unified risk-based framework built upon the analysis of historical data of casualties, near miss cases, deficiencies and non-conformities that are detected by various types of inspections. Based on this framework a software prototype will be developed that enables the interoperability and coherent interpretation of those data sources; and can contribute to the early detection of failure, either in the ship structure or its equipment.
This project focuses on emergency management competence and the development of tailor-made programs for education and training of key personnel involved in emergency operations.To facilitate knowledge transfer between the educational system, government institutions and emergency key personnel dealing with cross-border high-crisis situations. Goals include: To contribute to more tailor-made task force education and to more goal-oriented and cost-efficient training and exercise schemes; To contribute to more competent host-nation emergency support and efficient cross-border operations through knowledge transfer in and between competence institutions.
An Assessment of the Technological Developments in the Global Transport Sector and their Implications on Jobs and Employment by 2040. This research project aims to identify, evaluate and critically assess the impact of new technologies likely to be introduced in the global transportation sector by 2040 with a special emphasis on maritime transport. The specific focus of this project is an assessment of the implications of the new technologies and automation on jobs and the employment situation in the transport sector and how some of the negative side effects of the implementation of technologies and automation can be mitigated.
