SAFEDOR stands for Design, Operation and Regulation for Safety. It is an Integrated Project responding to the need of the EU maritime industry for evermore innovative solutions for better quality, cleaner and safer transport. SAFEDOR undertakes to deliver the foundation for Europe to sustain world-leadership on safety-critical and knowledge-intensive ships, services, products, equipment and related software and to instill systematic innovation in ship design and operation by modernising the maritime regulatory system.
The aim of SAFEDOR is to improve the safety of maritime transportation and to increase European shipbuilding competitiveness through the integration of risk criteria within ship design and approval frameworks in a rational and cost-effective basis. Activities will also establish that risk based design contributes to the maximisation of safety of new ships while supporting the design and approval of innovative types of vessels.
Members of the consortium conducting the SAFEDOR Project will present and discuss the work to date at a Workshop, to be held at the headquarters of the International Maritime Organization in London, on 14 February 2006. A limited number of places will be available at the Workshop for non-participants in the Project. If you wish to register for the SAFEDOR Workshop, send details of your name, organisation and position to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Registration fee for the Workshop will be 25€, which will include a copy of the Reports presented at the Workshop.
