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.

Philosophy with Children is Democracy in Action and thus part and parcel of Civic Education. This slogan canbe supported, first, because the respective methods of Philosophy with Children and Civic Education are very similar: namely, by the fact that political socialisation is driven substantially by developing communication competences, a concern at the heart of Philosophy with Children. Second, reflecting the basic concepts and values of civic education is first and foremost a philosophical issue. Data recently collected amongst children and teenagers aged 4 to 17 in Scotland and Switzerland on the question "In what kind of society do you want to live?" used Catherine McCalI's "Community of Philosophical Inquiry" (CoPI) to corroborate these assumptions and to contribute to understanding how Philosophy with Children complements Civic Education in terms of its methodology and its content: the discussions on justice lay the foundations upon which society can act politically.
