A VENTuRE for the design of energy efficient seafaring vessels
Under the European Commission’s maritime vision, the IMO, regulatory bodies and industries propose preventative measures to build a sustainable and cleaner environment emphasising on ‘energy efficiency’ to lower CO2 emissions. Malta's strategic location, infrastructure and experience results in a globally respected Maltese flag registry (sixth globally, first ranking flag on the European level). To address the shortage of educational infrastructure, generate sufficient human skills and research and innovation activities, the VENTuRE twinning action between the Universities of Malta, Strathclyde, Genoa and NAS, will work towards the creation of a virtual and experimental towing centre. The action is to maximise use of these facilities, secure transfer of essential knowledge, to increase HR capacity and expertise in Malta in the area of 'energy efficient’ ship design.
