Survey on Future Trends in Arctic Shipping

You are invited to participate in an online survey aiming to identify future trends in Arctic shipping, organised and conducted by Prof. Giles Thomas and Dr Dimitris Stagonas at University College London, Department of Mechanical Engineering. This study is part of SEDNA ("Safe maritime operations under extreme conditions: the Arctic case"), an EU Horizon 2020 research project that is developing an innovative and integrated risk-based approach to safe Arctic navigation, ship design and operation.

The survey is very brief and will only take less than 10 minutes to complete. Following the links below, you will find three different surveys on, Arctic Climate Change (focusing on Arctic sea-ice), Arctic Trade and Arctic Resources. Please complete the survey closest to your area of expertise. Note that you can complete more than one survey should you wish to.  To start with a survey please click the link below or copy and paste the link to your internet browser.

Shanghai forum 2018

Martin Bergström participated in Shanghai Forum 2018, May 26-28, where he was invited to speak at a session on “New Technologies for Future Arctic Operations”.

His talk, the topic of which was “Towards Holistic Goal-Based Design of Arctic Ship”,   was about the holistic goal-based design framework that we are developing within the SEDNA project.

Following the talk, he also attended a “round-table” discussion on the topic of the session.
