Abstract

This paper provides the background leading to what became known as the "Nordic Project", set up in the aftermath of the Estonia disaster with the view to examining fundamental ways of addressing the damage survivability of passenger/RoRo ferries. The main philosophy and key findings deriving from the project are explained and the way ahead highlighted.
