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 article focuses on a unique project designed to gauge the impact of using Philosophy with Children on young people in secure accommodation. This article describes the challenges and opportunities presented in introducing practical philosophy in such a setting. While the impact of the intervention on the young people's self-regulation is reported elsewhere (Heron & Cassidy, 2018), the present article discusses the nature of the dialogue and the influence of the philosophical dialogue's structures on the young people’s participation and their lived experiences.
