Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

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 aim of this report is to review recent changes in domestic regional policies across Europe, focusing on policy change over the 2011-12 period. The report has three main sections covering: an analysis of regional economic problems and trends in Europe over different timescales; a typology for understanding the different regional policy responses; and a review of recent changes to regional policies across 29 countries. The report is based on research in individual European countries and presente d in a series of country reports that have been provided separately (see EoRPA Paper 12/2). The paper is supported by a series of comparative tables that summarise the main regional policy instruments (see EoRPA Paper 12/3).
