In its strategic objectives (2005-2009) the Commission recognised that there is a “need for an all-embracing maritime policy aimed at developing a thriving maritime economy, in an environmentally sustainable manner. Such a policy should be supported by excellence in marine scientific research, technology and innovation."
The European research networks dealing with the marine and maritime research sectors transport and maritime industries, tourism, coastal development, security, living resources, fisheries and aquaculture have joined forces to take further steps in integrating their scientific activities. This workshop presents their progress, including several case studies for marine and maritime research cooperation.

The Floodstand project studied flooding, flooding simulation, damage stability, evacuation and rescue, experimental and numerical testing, decision-support and passenger ships.
It aimed first of all to increase the reliability of flooding simulation tools in design and onboard use, by establishing modeling principles and uncertainty bounds. Secondly, it looked to establish a method for instantaneous classification of the severity of ship flooding casualty. Its final results will be presented at this public seminar.
