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.

This report examines a project building on two recent related projects which the research team have been involved with. One study ‘Who gets to play?’, funded by SEMPRE (Society for Education, Music and Psychology Research), was an investigation of access to instrumental music instruction in Scottish primary schools (Moscardini, Barron & Wilson, 2013). This study led to the development of the Play On project funded by Creative Scotland and led by Paragon Music in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde and Enable Scotland. Play On was set up with the aim of providing instrumental music lessons to children with additional support needs. This research project had three primary aims: (1) To undertake a scoping exercise of current provision of music education opportunities for under 25 year olds across Glasgow city, by investigating who is providing what, where and for whom and accurately collate an understanding of existing services, provision and practice. (2) Explore the ways in which provision may be further developed to reach all children and young people, through an area-based approach (e.g. North East Glasgow). (3) Develop networking opportunities for key stakeholders so that the findings of the scoping study can inform strategic responses.
