Technologies and Methodologies for Safe, Environmental-friendly and Efficient Shipping Operations of the future (INMARE)


Under the increasing pressure of the public opinion, the market and Authorities of European Union, there is a growing attention to the waterborne transport as a solution to reduce the increasing pressure of the road transport in freight and passenger and to enhance the reliability and safety level of waterborne transport services. As consequence, in the next future ship-owners will be requested to provide a higher quality, reliable, safe and secure service both for increasing the absorption of traffic share and for providing a more efficient and reliable service, also through the effective integration of the maritime transport in a complete inter-modal chain. To fulfill these demands, a greater effort in research and development is the most appropriate way to promote progress of the scientific and technological level of waterborne transport and to encourage a wider application of the so defined "best practices" among ship-operators. Main value of the InMare C.A. is to build a wide round table of the different maritime transport's actors (ship-yards, systems makers, etc.), leaded and steered by the most representative selection of E.U. ship-operators with the goal to trace the way to the ship-operation of the future. Therefore, the main objective of the InMare project is to promote a Coordination Action with the aim to create, co-ordinate and integrate several Working Groups able to assess the State of the Art and to identify the most promising scientific and technical development, also in view of a future realization of an Integrated research Project, addressed to the following selected topics: a) Further enhancing European Short Sea shipping to improve freight services and passengers well be-ing; b) Crew reduction and adequacy in the light of Human Resources development; c) Decision tools supporting on-board decisions in the routine as well as in the emergency situations; d) Contribution to new rules and regulations to enhance Maritime Security a
