Integrated collaborative design and production of cruise vessels, passenger ships and RoPax (InterSHIP)

Objective

The proposal aims to increase competitiveness of EU shipbuilders by better integrating tools and methods for design and manufacturing of complex one-of-a-kind vessels. InterSHIP will enable shipyard engineers to consider leading edge knowledge in environ mental aspects, safety, comfort, and cost efficiency in simultaneous engineering, thus making sure, that optimum solutions can be obtained for the total lifecycle of complex ships. InterSHIP will also focus on improving vertical integration between shipy ards, owners, suppliers, classification societies and horizontal cooperation between EU shipyards. Aspects like education and training, innovation management in shipyards and cooperation with other projects and industries will be covered in horizontal a ctions, making sure that the project results are quickly implemented for the benefit of the entire European maritime community.
