Co-ordination action to implement an advisory council for maritime transport research in Europe

Objetivo

The European Council Lisbon Declaration setting a new strategic goal for the European Union: "to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010." and in addition the European Union Transport Policy goals of "efficient accessible and competitive transport systems which are essential togrowth, employment and EU competitiveness" and " a high level of safety and environmental protection" call for an invigorated, structured maritime industry's cluster approach, notably in the field of Innovation, research and development.

To this end main stakeholders from within the Maritime Industries Forum (MIF) decided to establish a platform for continuous dialogue between all stakeholders (including the EU and national government institutions), the Advisory Council for Maritime Transport Research in Europe -ACMARE- for establishing consensus on future research directions and to support mobilisation of the necessary financial resources. A Coordination Action (referred to as ACMARE(CA)) is proposed, with the objective to prepare, secure full participation and implement this platform. The main emphasis will be on the management and organisational features and necessary technical support as well as on the dissemination and promotion of the objectives and visions of ACMARE.

The primary mission of ACMARE is to:
-establish a continuous dialogue between all stakeholders in the maritime transport sector on R&D;
-contribute to the widest possible consensus regarding R&D and to focussing of efforts and resources
-develop common medium and long term R&D Vision and a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA)
-contribute to the appropriate mobilisation and allocation of the necessary financial resources (private/regional/national/EU sources)
-support education and training to maintain the high skilled workforce in Europe
-accommodate the social expectations regarding clean and safe waterborne transport
