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

This publication reports the context, contributors, topics and outcomes of a five event (4x2days & end point conference) seminar series which acknowledged the need for an autism research strategy for Scotland and to relate this to international knowledge and current research in Scotland. The report calls for an Independent Autism Research Consultative Body, the Scottish Autism Strategy Governance Group to meet research relevant Recommendations 7 & 8 of the Autism Strategy and to maintain strong links with the proposed independent body so that research can inform the direction of the Strategy in its second 5 years of implementation, and for researchers in Scotland to make their work widely known for maximum impact in meeting the many issues facing autistic people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them.
