Network ENT II
Aim of the joint call The partners of SURSHIP are convinced that it is possible to build safer ships if a joint R&D effort is taken on the improved survivability of the entire ship, in a holistic meaning. The comprehensive and coordinated approach of all countries participating in SURSHIP will lead to gains in efficiency, competitiveness and will have severe scientific, political and economical impacts. It is not possible for one single country alone to accomplish this ambitious task of creating a new comprehensive maritime safety approach. SURSHIP will create an improved know how of a more generic, holistic ship safety approach which will influence ship owners, ship builders, suppliers and national administrations as well as the work on IMO.
