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.

Mobile cultures, across the United Kingdom and Europe, continue to experience widespread discrimination in their daily lives (Lloyd and McCluskey 2008). Due to transient lifestyles and tentative relationships with schools and services, children and young people from these communities have few opportunities to share their views on important issues that affect their lives. This article spotlights the children and youth from European Roma and Gypsy/Traveller communities who have collaborated with the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Mobile Cultures and Education over the past two years. These youth rarely participate in research and their voices remain marginalized in Scottish society.
