Design for Ship Safety in Extreme Seas (EXTREME SEAS)

Duration: 01.09.2009-30.04.2013 (44 months)

Coordination: Det Norske Veritas (Norway)

Partners: Instituto Superior Técnico (Portugal); Germanischer Lloyd (Germany); Technische Univerität Berlin (Germany); Meteorological Institute (Norway); Universitá di Torino (Italy); Institute of Applied Physics (Russian Federation); Canal de Experiencias Hidrodinamicas de El Pardo (Spain); Meyer Werft (Germany); Estaleiros Navais de Viana do Castelo (Portugal); University Duisburg-Essen (Germany)

Funding Entity: EU - Transport Programme (Sustainable Surface Transport)

The objective is to develop new technologies and innovative solutions for the improvement of safety and security in transport operations and the protection of vulnerable users. Activities will address the entire range of approaches and technologies to ensure safer operations based on design for safety, advanced protection systems, intelligent vehicles, vessels and infrastructures (including their interactions) and related socio-economic aspects. Research will also address aspects inherent to the transport system which can lead to the achievement of an adequate level of intrinsic security of transport system and operations.
