In the resilience area, scientific insights and operational practices will be seen in concert to be prepared for expected and unexpected events.
Particular attention is on laws and regulations, integrated planning between the transport modes, at different management levels (from government to operational practise), work practices in the sharp and blunt end, and the interrelations between the levels.
Maritime transport systems (MTM) are becoming increasingly interconnected, automated and complex. This development involves new opportunities but will also imply new vulnerabilities and risks.
The project will focus on implementation and application of vessels with different levels of automation. The resilience engineering perspective represents a proactive management approach and principles for handling all situations from normal operations, variability of practice, to surprises and catastrophes. Knowledge about resilience can be applied to improve the reliability of MTM, e.g. when implementing new transport forms like automated vessels.
Further, MARMAN will explore what forms of regulatory, managerial, and operational competencies that are needed when faced with increased connectivity and automation.
The results related to maritime resilience management are based on a socio-technical approach and will be adapted to integrated planning area. In the resilience area, scientific insights and operational practices will be seen in concert to be prepared for expected and unexpected events.
