Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

The 2007-13 period has seen important changes in the management and implementation of cohesion policy with respect to improving strategic coherence, concentrating expenditure on priorities related to the Lisbon Agenda, improving performance and ensuring better strategic reporting. However, the expectations of the 2006 reforms have only been partially met, and there are key lessons for European institutions and Member States regarding commitment, capacity and accountability for the 2014-20 period.
