Introduction of the Project

Norwegian Centre of Expertise Maritime NCE Maritime, Aalesund, is one of the Norwegian Centres of Expertise, having a national responsibility for developing the maritime cluster in Norway. Established in the last half of 2006, the NCE is still being developed, also with respect to basic knowledge about the maritime world outside of Norway. The NCE is to a large extent focused on managing, initiating and facilitating R&D co-projects, where the parties might be a number of companies or companies and R&D-institution(s), local, national or international. Recruitment is an other important field for the Centre. The Norwegian maritime industry today is actively sourcing labor from abroad, while academic competence primarily is sourced locally/nationally. It is expected that the industry will have to source a greater part of its academic abroad. A number of other uses for the intelligence sought are also foreseen, without being specified. The goal of this assignment is to identify teaching institutions (Master and PhD level) and individual R&D-institutions in Lithuania.

Methodology
Deskwork based on collection of primary information on Internet telephone screening, interview with authorities related to Maritime Industry. Introduction of NCE Lithuania The list of institution was created and presented in the report institution who work within the was made by sending e-mails to relevant education , R&D and training in institutions involved in marine

The following methodology was used during the assignment:

Since the number of education and R&D

maritime (ship design and ship equipment) is limited in the market in addition we suggested broader range of institutions involved in Marine teaching, training and R&D. Maritime Teaching and R&D institutions in Lithuania

Short Maritime sector overview


Maritime sector in Lithuania is linked to development of the Klaipeda seaport, shipbuilding and repair industry. The ship building industry is concentrated in Klaipeda, the third largest city of Lithuania which is situated in the Western part of the country. Klaipeda State Seaport www.portofklaipeda.lt modernisation and is the northernmost ice free port on the It is an universal, multimodal, Eastern coast of the Baltic Sea and currently is on the process of expansion. multipurpose and wide-range port. 19 large stevedoring, dockyard and shipbuilding companies operate in the port, all services related to the marine business and cargo handling are rendered at the port. Stevedoring companies of the port are capable to handle up to 30 million tons of cargo annually. Klaipeda port is also an important passenger port with modern ferry terminals. Regular cargo/passenger ferries are operated by regular navigation lines to Germany, Sweden and Denmark; a new cruise ship terminal has been built. Taking in to account that there are 900 shipbuilding and repair companies in the European Union, which employ more than 350 thousand people. 35 billion euros fall to shipbuilding and repair market in the EU, The market share of Lithuania having 28 companies with 4.5 thousand employees is quite small. Shipbuilding and repair is virtually a new branch of industry. Beside of that Shipbuilding and repair industry takes up a rather stable position in the general market. The competitiveness is guaranteed by good geographical location, high quality of works, attractive prices, and successful activity of Klaipeda port. The biggest Lithuanian shipbuilder and ship repair is represented by Western Shipyard http://www.wsy.lt, (references: Alendal Rederi AS, Norway; N-6410 Midsund, Norway.;Batbygg AS, Norway and others).

Since Lithuania joint EU in 2004 some changes took the place in this very industry. Heavily increased expenditures raised the prices of shipbuilding and repair works. The energy and labor costs have increased notably, too. The prevailing misbalance between supply and demand the latter is less than supply also reduced the competitiveness of shipbuilders and ship repairers.

The situation was also worsened by emigration problems that have emerged after the EU enlargement. Qualified specialists from Lithuania leave for work to Scandinavian countries, and country is forced to look for missing workers in Russia, the Ukraine. Although good specialists arrive from there, but their qualification documents do not meet the EU requirements. The country invests a lot for their qualification. Big investments are made in training and retraining employees in different training centres. Major institutions providing training and cooperation with shipbuilding companies are Klaipeda School of Shipbuilders and Repairers which trains qualified workers; Klaipeda University which educates engineering employees including ship design specialist. But from these educational institutions country receive marine business specialists more of general profile. Therefore, the companies have to send their employees for training to specialized higher schools in other countries. More information about education and training in marine see in the chapters bellow.

Short Education Sector overview


In general the educational system in Lithuania has gone through a continuous process of development in the past few years. The options and the quality of the system have increased. So far there is no local and no international accreditation system applied for high education in Lithuania. High Education institutions are of two types: universities and colleges. A higher education is acquired after the completion of undergraduate studies, which last four or five years in an institution of higher education. Upon completion of the undergraduate studies, a specialized professional or Master degree programme, lasting one and a half to two years, can be undertaken only at the Universities. Doctoral studies in Lithuania last for four years. (Source: Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania www.smm.lt ); Study Quality Assessment centre www.skvc.lt)

A Doctorate is required for teaching in higher education institutions. A Master's degree is needed to begin a career as a lecturer.

Every university carries out research and participates in different international projects financed by different sources both local and international.

Since marine industry is comparatively small and developing the education system in marine is on the stage of development and modernization. All education and training institutions are located in Klaipeda. Major education institutions within marine sector are Klaipeda University (KU), Klaipeda University Maritime Institute (KUMI) and Lithuanian Maritime College. (LMC) (More detailed information please sees in the chapter list of high education in maritime).

Klaipeda University has been developing as most important an autonomous, distance educational and scientific centre for marine industry. Klaipeda University is one of the youngest among Lithuanian university level high schools, founded on October 5, 1990, at the very beginning of Lithuanian independence re-establishment. During a relatively short period of its existence, the University has been developing successfully both in terms of quality and quantity. The teaching staff in general is represented by approximately 431 professors, associate professors, lecturers, and instructors.

Basic characterization of the research system

Lithuania like any other post-soviet country which had a centrally planned economy, had to build a new policy from the previously left fragmented and separated R&D, education and industry development policies. However the actual integration of the existing national innovation system and R&D is not the case for today yet. R&D on the one hand and innovation on the other hand still remain separate systems in Lithuania. Lithuania ranks 19th out of 25 EU countries and in 24th place out of 33 countries. It performs slightly above the EU average for innovation drivers, due to good performance on all education indicators except for life-long learning. Lithuania suffers from extremely low levels of business R&D, which is partly compensated by excessive levels of university R&D funded by business (at 235% the EU average). The strengths of the Lithuanian R&D system reside in the high tech areas, such as biotechnologies, laser, mechatronics, which represent only 4% of the Lithuanian industrial structure. Most of scientific results today are developed through the participation in international science programmers, where Lithuanian researchers have found their niche and are serving as intellectual input providers. By fact EU accession in May 2004 allowed to double amount of funds available for R&D and innovation In Lithuania. According to interviews received investment in marine sector in R&D and innovation are mainly are focusing in environment field in the Baltic Sea area and in Klaipeda State sea port modernization and expansion.(More detailed info on R&D please sees in chapter 6).

Business culture in Lithuania


In what ways does normal business culture differ from Norwegian business culture?
Short-term thinking still often prevails On-time delivery is often a challenge , more in business.Participation in International projects is strict by deadlines lines and followed in the right manner Written agreements are necessary Respect of acting faster in the competitive market because of high competition and fast development of the market Quality of management varies by regions. More Western style of business culture is demonstrated in capital Vilnius as well in Klaipeda which is the second largest city by foreign investment. English language is recognized as Business language, spoken Russian and German. Foreign language skills are insufficient in the regions. It is important to agree in advance when interpreter needed during the meeting.

Some of info when building Relationships & Communication Lithuanians prefer face-to-face meetings, as they need to build relationships of mutual understanding. It is important to make your initial contact with a high-ranking person who is in a position to make a decision. In many ways this is still a hierarchical culture, so showing respect and deference to people of authority is recommended. Although they are industrious and hard working At the same time, Lithuanians are impressed by titles of authority and advanced university degrees, so it is a good idea to let them know your status within your company They are not particularly emotional speakers and quite reserved upon the initial meeting.

Business Meetings & Negotiations Appointments are necessary and should be scheduled 2 to 3 weeks in advance. It is important to send the list of the people who will be attending and their titles so the Lithuanians can assemble a team of similar level people. Lithuanians will not be rushed into making a deal. They must think it is in their best interest before agreeing. Meetings often conclude with a summary of the discussion and future steps are important to be indicated preliminary for future dealings.

Summary
in Lithuania

In summary the maritime industry is comparatively small

and is on the stage of development and modernization. It is linked to shipbuilding and ship repair and in Klaipeda sea port (30 million tone capacity annually) development and modernization. One of the biggest shipbuilding and repair yards is Western Shipyard http://www.wsy.lt (19 companies group) is dominating and many small and medium size service providers are established in the Klaipeda city. Mechanical workshops inland are supplying steel constructions and ship parts to major shipbuilding yard and companies locally and abroad. Leisure boat producers are also established in the Klaipeda harbor area, inland. Consequently to the development of marine industry the marine education system is on the stage of modernization too. There is the only one University Klaipeda University which provides high university education master degree level within the marine sector in ship design and engineering. Study programmes of Marine Engineering Faculty: Bachelor level is Ship engineering and Port technologies; and at Master level: Ship design & shipbuilding; Port management; Port constructions; Marine environmental engineering; Ships electric equipment & automation. Doctors Transport Engineering programme for doctors degree in Klaipeda University is suspended at the moment. Study programmes of Maritime Institute of Klaipeda University: Bachelor level: Ship Navigation; Marine Power Plant Engineering and Master Level: Management of fleet technical exploitation; and Fleet technical exploitation. Despite a good research landscape, in particular in the fields of information and communication technologies, nanotechnology or biotechnology, there is still very little transfer from the research sector to the enterprise sector. Major R&D within the maritime is provided by Klaipeda University, Maritime Institute under the Klaipeda University and Coastal Research and Planning Institute under the Klaipeda University.

MARITIME EDUCATION INSTITUTES THE NETHERLANDS

General information Through the branch organisation Maritiem Nederland www.maritiem-nederland.nl we have received a brochure with addresses to eleven maritime education institutes in the Netherlands, of which four institutes are international colleges, whilst the remaining seven are national colleges. The maritime education institutes works in close cooperation with the shipping industry and shipowners. The colleges have to some extent also their own research institutes/laboratories. Most of the institutes have their own training vessels and extensive training facilities. Training with simulators is common practice. We have also included Delft University of Technology (TU-Delft) to the survey of international maritime education institutes, due to the fact that this university has its own Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering. TU-Delft is working in close contact with other maritime education institutes as well as the shipping industry. TU-Delft has its own research laboratory / department. In addition, the address of the Royal Netherlands Naval Defence College has been included in this survey and listed as a national maritime education institute. The most important maritime research institute in the Netherlands is MARIN in Wageningen. This institute also has contact with SINTEF in Trondheim. The largest international maritime education institute is the STC-Group in Rotterdam with the Scheepvaart en Transport College and the Hogeschool voor de Scheepvaart (Nautical University), both in Rotterdam. For further information about the maritime education institutes and the research institutes, please refer to the listing in table form below.

Comments:

List of the teachers listed on the website under the bloc Docenten. On the Deltions website there is an article in the regional newspaper Zwolse Courant from September 2000 referring to the fact that the Dutch Merchant Navy is in desperate need of qualified personell. Due to the reorganisation of the marine education early 1990 various maritime educational schools ceased to exist. Deltion College restarted the education of maritime officer in 1998. The education takes 3 years. After this education one can start with specialisation to captain. Deltion College works closely together with other maritime teaching institutions to create educational papers in English in order to attract foreign students to the college. The aim is to deliver about 50 maritime officers per school year.

General assessment of the (business) culture in Romania


1. Business Climate The Monitoring Report of the European Commission released in September 2006 acknowledged progress made by Romania with regard to macroeconomic stabilisation and economic reform. Further progress has been acknowledged in reforming the justice system as well as in the fight against corruption. However, corruption is still high at various levels. Romania's achievements have also been recognised by the rating agencies with Moodys upgrading Romanias long-term and short-term foreign and local currency ratings to Baa3 with a stable outlook in October 2006 while one year ago, S&P raised Romania's long-term foreign currency credit rating to investment grade at 'BBB-', with stable outlook. The new government moved fast to modify the fiscal code with the aim of bringing it into line with EU requirements and to provide an atmosphere of business stability and predictability in Romania. The new code that came into force on 1 January 2007 maintains the single flat tax rate of 16% and VAT remains at 19%. The code also stipulates that micro companies pay a 2% tax on revenues earned in 2007, 2.5% on revenues for 2008 and 3% on revenues for 2009. Capital gain for sale of shares is taxed at 1% for long-term holdings (more than one year) and 16% for short-term holdings (less than one year). The privatisation process continues with large-scale sell-offs slated to take place in the financial sector (i.e. the National Savings Bank-CEC), in the energy sector (i.e. the National Gas Company -Romgaz, three power complexes and three electricity distributors), in post and radio-communications (i.e. the Romanian Post, the National Radio-communications Company), in the pharmaceutical sector (i.e. Antibiotice Iasi), and in the transport sector (i.e. the Romanian Freight Railway Transport-CFR Marfa) 2. The Economy The latest data on GDP growth indicates a 7.4% increase for the first semester of 2006 as opposed to the same period in 2005. The Government expected a GDP growth of around 6.7% in 2006, while the

Side 83 av 171 08/06/2007

final figures indicated an even higher accelerated rate of 7.7% at the end of 2006. The GDP was up to almost EUR 100 billion in 2006, this figure following to be overcome this year. The inflation target was slightly missed in 2005, reaching 8.6% at year-end (the initial estimate for 2005 being 7%) and is forecasted to be 6.1% by the end of 2006. The unemployment rate continued to drop, falling to 5.9% in 2005 against 6.2% at the end of 2004. The share capital subscribed by foreign investors in Romanian companies was of EUR 2.6 billion in 2005, up 16% compared to 2004, according to the National Trade Register Office. The number of new companies established by foreign investors exceeded 11,700 in 2005. The trade deficit reached EUR 10.3 billion in 2005, 40.4% above the level reported for 2004, according to the National Statistics Institute. Imports amounted to EUR 32.5 billion in 2005, a 24% increase on 2004, while exports rose by 17.5% in 2005 to EUR 22.2 billion. Romanias industrial output rose by 2.0% in 2005 from 2004, according to the National Statistics Institute. Labour productivity in the industrial sector was 5.2% higher year-on-year. Meanwhile, the National Bank of Romania (BNR) hard currency reserves, excluding some 104.8 tonnes of gold, rose to EUR 16.7 billion at the end of December 2005 from EUR 10.8 billion the previous year. At the end of September 2006, total reserves were around EUR 20 billion. 3. Government Objectives The Government's main objective is to continue reforms in all areas so that Romania may fulfil all her obligations pledged during the EU accession process and to take full advantage of EU membership. Among the main government priorities stated in the Government Programme for the period of 20052008 there are: development of infrastructure, justice system, economic performance improvement, agriculture and rural development and public administration reform. 4. Education

Education is mandatory from the ages of six to fifteen. The Romanian state education system includes primary, secondary, and higher education institutions. The higher education sector consists of academic universities and polytechnic institutes. Like many post-communist countries, Romania has always had a reputation for strength in scientific fields. Recent years have seen an increase in the number of secondary and post-secondary establishments and private education has become more popular. For the academic year 2004-2005, 24% of the total number of students enrolled in higher education attended private institutions. Business administration and management studies have been introduced in cooperation with institutions in the US, UK, France and Canada. 5. Business and Social Etiquette

Romanian business customs tend to be formal. Introductions are respectful, business cards are exchanged and suits are worn. The handshake is used both on meeting and taking leave. Dealing with public and state officials can sometimes be time-consuming and requires perseverance. Romanians are often very proud of their national heritage, and tend to be sensitive about cultural and political matters that concern their country.

MODULES ON MARITIME BUSINESS ECONOMICS SINGAPORE MANAGEMENT UNIVERSITY (SMU)

OVERVIEW This course is designed to introduce Maritime Business Economics to undergraduates with good economics/business background, who are approaching the subject for the first time. In the context of the international, Asian, and Singaporean economic and business environment, this course develops, in an integrated way, an understanding of the business and economic aspects of the global maritime industries of shipping, ports, and terminals and their institutional framework. COURSE SCHEDULE Ocean Transportation And International Trade What role does transportation play in the promotion of international trade and economic development? Shipping And The Balance Of Payments What is the economic significance of the maritime sector, where does it appear and how can we measure it? Cargoes And Ships: The Geography Of International Trade Who are the worlds exporters and importers, what types of goods are there traded and with what (specialized) ships do we carry them? The Demand For Shipping Services What are the factors determining the demand for transportation by cargo owners? Are the latter price-sensitive? Can we, from international trade data, calculate how many ships are required to transport global trade? The Supply Of Shipping Services How do shipowners make their investment decisions? What determines the maximum size of ships? Pricing In Bulk- And Liner Shipping How competitive are maritime markets and what determines prices (freight rates) there? Liner Shipping Networks It is not about shipping anymore but about door-to-door networks; can we optimize network operations, remove bottlenecks, reduce transportation times, enhance efficiency, and lower prices? Finance And Freight Derivatives How is ship acquisition financed and how can we mitigate market risks? Container Terminal Management And Optimization

The management of a private container terminal is a highly complex business; often land is scarce and thus operations have to be optimized to the extreme. The best example of this is Singapore herself with her world-famous PSA Terminals Shipbroking And Chartering Practice Shipbrokers, i.e. market intermediaries, are necessary to bridge demand for and supply of ships in this global and geographically dispersed market; how do they conduct their business and why is Singapore such an important shipbroking center? Shipping Pools And Ship-Management Companies Are there economies of scale and scope from joining forces? Specialized companies, known as ship-management companies, can run my ships for me; should I do it? Is this a worthwhile proposition? What is it that makes Singapore and Hong Kong such important ship-management centers?

UNDERGRADUATE MODULE ON SHIPPING ECONOMICS / POSTGRADUATE MODULE ON SHIPPING ECONOMICS NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE (NUS)

OVERVIEW The course aims to familiarize students with the economic underpinnings of the international shipping industry. International transportation has evolved into a complex system involving ocean carriers, ports, terminals and multimodal transport intermediaries. In such networks, major container hubs, such as this of Singapore, play a crucial role as nodes and transshipment centers. Nowadays, the optimization of global supply chains requires a holistic approach to shipping through the study of what has come to be known as Maritime Economics and Logistics (MEL). The course follows this approach, focusing on liner (container) shipping, its operations, structure and regulatory environment. SESSIONS Ship types and cargoes: the geography of shipping; Shipping and international trade; Demand for transport; Supply of shipping services; Shipping Cycles; Liner shipping economics (structure/conduct/performance); Shipbuilding and scrapping economics; Port economics (competition and pricing); Liner shipping operations (networks, alliances); Hub and Spoke systems and operations; Container terminal management; International organizations and maritime policy. While both courses have similar outlines and topics, the level of instruction for the postgraduate module is more demanding as it require students not only to make references to journal articles but include higher level theoretical analysis. The mode of assessment at the postgraduate level tests the student's ability to apply through more rigorous projects. The undergraduate module is designed as an introduction to Shipping Economics.

LLM (MARITIME LAW) NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE (NUS)

OVERVIEW The LLM (Maritime Law) is a new masters programme to be offered for the first time in the 2007-08 academic year (commencing August 2007). It will enable law graduates to obtain specialized knowledge in maritime law, a field of great importance to Singapore and the region. Students will obtain a comprehensive overview of the legal matters relating to commercial shipping, marine insurance, shipping regulation and ocean policy. Overseas candidates accepted into this programme will do it full-time within one academic year. Candidates working for companies based in Singapore who are supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore will normally do the course part-time and complete it within two academic years. This flexibility is also open to students in the Graduate Diploma in Maritime Law and Arbitration, which is designed for the non-lawyer professional. The LLM (Maritime Law) degree requires a total of 40 credits of subjects, at least 24 credits of which must be in the maritime law specialization. Students must thus take at least six subjects (24 credits) from a list of specialized subjects. The list includes the following subjects: Carriage of Goods by Sea Admiralty Law & Practice Maritime Law Law of Marine Insurance Ocean Law and Policy in Asia International Regulation of Shipping Chinese Maritime Law International Commercial Arbitration Principles of Conflict of Laws

MODULES IN MARITIME LAW NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE (NUS)

OVERVIEW Maritime Law This course will provide an understanding of the legal issues that arise from casualties involving ships. It will examine aspects of the law of collisions, salvage, towage, wreck and general average. Students successfully completing the course will be familiar with the international conventions governing these issues, as well as the domestic law of Singapore. Some attention may be paid to questions of forum selection in casualty cases. Admiralty Law And Practice This course will introduce the various concepts relating to the admiralty action in rem, which is the primary means by which a maritime claim is enforced. Topics will include: the nature of an action in rem; the subject matter of admiralty jurisdiction; the invocation of admiralty jurisdiction involving the arrest of offending and sister ships; the procedure for the arrest of ships; liens encountered in admiralty practice: statutory, maritime and possessory liens; the priorities governing maritime claims; and time bars and limitations. This course is essential to persons who intend to practice shipping law. Carriage Of Goods By Sea This course will examine the two types of contracts of affreightment by sea, charterparties and bills of lading. It will examine the rights and liabilities of parties under the contracts of affreightment, including the shipowner, the charterer, the cargo owner, the lawful holder of the bill of lading, etc. Major international conventions on shipping law, such as the Hague -Visby Rules, will also be examined. This course will be of importance to individuals contemplating a career in shipping law. It is also essential for an appreciation of Singapore's role as a major global port and maritime hub. Principles Of Conflict Of Laws The subject of conflict of laws addresses three questions: Which country should hear the case? What law should be applied? What is the effect of its adjudication in another country? This course includes an outline of jurisdiction and judgments techniques, but will focus on problems in choice of law, and issues in the exclusion of foreign law. Coverage includes problems in contract and torts, and other areas may be selected from time to time. This course is complementary to International Commercial Litigation, but it stands on its own as an introduction to theories and methodologies in the conflict of laws. International Commercial Arbitration This course aims to equip students with the basic understanding of the law of arbitration to enable them to advise and represent parties in the arbitral process confidence. Legal concepts peculiar to arbitration viz. separability, arbitrability and kompetenze-kompetenze will considered together with the procedural laws on the conduct of the arbitral process, the making of and the enforcement of awards.

Side 119 av 171

35

Students will examine the UNCITRAL Model Law and the New York Convention, 1958. This course is most suited for students with some knowledge of the law of commercial transactions, shipping, banking, international sale of goods or construction. International Regulation Of Shipping This course will consider the public law aspects of shipping commonly regulated under the conventions adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The focus is on the international regulatory regime relating to maritime safety, protection of the environment and maritime security that has been established by the IMO. Increasingly, these public law aspects of shipping are exerting great impact on maritime commerce, to the point that the shipowners are now complaining of "overregulation". Thus, in this course, the international rules on maritime safety will be considered, as will issues relating to the prevention of pollution and liability arising from oil or other cargo pollution. The right of the shipowner to limit his liability to a certain monetary amount will also be examined. There will also be a consideration of the important maritime security issues currently occupying the IMO regulatory agenda in the aftermath of the events of 11th September 2001. Among some of the important questions to be considered are the following: which state's laws should govern and regulate shipping? Should these be the flag state's laws, or the port or coastal state's? Should laws be harmonised at the international level? If so, by which body? Are international rules effective, or do they amount to the lowest common denominators of states' agreement? If some states find international rules to be unsatisfactory, what are the consequences of their adopting unilateral stricter rules? What is the impact of "unilateral" rules adopted by the United States and the European Union, particularly when these deviate from IMO standards? Questions will also arise relating to the liability of private individuals such as the shipowners, charterers, salvors, classification societies etc for damage caused by the ship, for instance, the pollution damage caused to a coastal state. In the course of discussions, students will obtain an appreciation of how the ship transportation industry works as well as the commercial, political and social realities which motivate and influence the behaviour of the relevant actors. Ocean Law And Policy This course examines the process by which ocean law is being developed as new institutions, new commitments, new management tools and new levels of cooperation are required to manage the resources of the oceans and the marine environment in the 21st century. An emphasis will be placed on the impact of international environmental law on the existing legal regime governing the oceans. This includes the call for the sustainable development of ocean resources and the call to preserve the biological diversity of coastal and ocean areas. This course is intended for students' interested maritime law, international law and environmental law. Perhaps no natural resource is more important to Singapore than its coastal waters and the marine environment beyond. Since the 1950s global diplomacy has effected a legal revolution in ocean affairs, chiefly through the Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS III), which culminated in the adoption of the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea (1982 Convention). Marine policy issues have assumed a high priority for Singapore and other countries in Southeast Asia. The new legal framework provided by the 1982 Convention has opened vast jurisdictional entitlements and managerial responsibilities to coastal states around the world. As

Side 120 av 171

36

one of the world's leading port states, Singapore has special security, economic, and environmental interests in the new legal regime. This course examines the processes by which the international community has transformed ocean law and set new directions for ocean policy-making through UNCLOS III and other international arenas. A special emphasis will be placed on shipping, transit and other navigational issues of particular concern to Singapore. We will also examine other regional issues, such as ocean resource and security issues in the South China Sea. In addition, we will examine the dispute settlement mechanisms for ocean disputes, with special emphasis on the dispute between Singapore and Malaysia regarding Singapore's land reclamation practices in the Johor Strait. A major theme of the course will be whether the legal framework established in the 1982 Convention will be able to meet the challenges for global governance of the oceans in the next century. In particular, we will examine the impact of international environment law on the legal regime governing the oceans, especially the 1992 UN Conference on Environment & Development (UNCED, Agenda 21, Chapter 17), and the 2002 Johannesburg Summit on Sustainable Development.

At present, within the Faculty of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, the research and development projects can be classified as follows: University supported projects State sponsored projects Industry sponsored projects University sponsorship is generally provided for basic research in the form of support for post-graduate studies through employment as research assistants as well as the provisions for the coverage of expenses including hardware and firmware acquisitions for projects of limited duration with an aim to increase the department's capabilities in different interest areas. Sources of State sponsorships are the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Establishment (TUBITAK), State Planning Organization (DPT), Advisory Services to the Prime Minister, Istanbul City Local Government, and the Department of the Navy. These projects vary greatly in their scopes, contents and durations and generally tend to address specific topics like Bosporus Marine Traffic Simulation or the Design of Oil Spill Recovery Vehicles. In a number of cases, part of the financing has been in the form of donation of equipment or free supply of certain specialist services for facility and equipment improvements. Industry financed projects are largely short term and the main topics are design, development and evaluation of ships and shipbuilding facilities requiring the use of computational methods (including computer simulations), model testing and full scale measurements. In addition to contribution towards improved technical awareness in the industry, these projects provide invaluable data to the academic personnel for their future research and development efforts. Research Groups Hull Optimization Group Computational Wave-Making Analysis and Hull Form Optimization for Minimum Resistance. Local hull-shape optimization procedure is based on potential flow solvers for bow form and boundary layer integral technique as well as a data base for the aft form. Bow form optimization is carried out by assuming the total resistance to be the sum of frictional resistance (ITTC-1957) and wave resistance, which is based on thin-ship theory. Tent functions are used to approximate the hull geometry. Thus, the approximated total resistance is reduced to a quadratic programming (QP) problem with linear inequality design constraints. This QP problem is then solved by Wolfe's algorithm. The bow form improvement process is commenced with an initial ship geometry. The resultant optimal forms are then numerically tested with regards to their wave-making characteristics by a more sophisticated potential flow solver. The flow solver used in wave-making analyses was developed at ITU by using the Dawson's algorithm in Hess and Smith's panel method. This code has been tested numerous times in the past and found capable of giving sensitive results for wave-making characteristics.

In a recent EUCLID project (RTP 10.14), ITU's flow solver proved itself to be the best for moderate Froude numbers among the 4 partners. The optimization code and potential flow code are the components of the whole optimization process. This process has been used more then 20 times in the last decade and has been able to attain at least 4 % gain in total resistance and more than 10 % gains in some cases due to bow modifications. A detailed explanation of the above mentioned processes could also be found in the following research papers: [1] Gren, ., Helvaciolu, . and Insel, M., "Bow Form Optimization of Displacement Ships by Mathematical Programming", Ship Technology Research, Vol.44, No.2, 1997. [2] Danisman, D.B., Gren, ., Insel, M. and Atlar, M., "An Optimization Study for the Bow Form of High-Speed Displacement Catamarans", Marine Technology, Vol. 38, No. 2, 2001. Maneuver Group Maneuvering Performance Assessment The maneuverability is one of the main considerations in any ship design study. The T maneuvering simulation software is based on reliable and well-proven procedures developed, originally by Vladimir Ankudinov, who has many years of experience in numerical ship maneuvering prediction. The crucial part of the software is the prediction of hydrodynamic coefficients. Due to the strong influence of viscous effects these coefficients are difficult to estimate using pure theoretical methods. The prediction of hydrodynamic coefficients is based on the regression of a wide range of experimental and full-scale data. These data were obtained from, basically, the US Army Corps of Engineers, MARAD, main experimental tanks such as SSPA and the open literature. The program can be used for two basic purposes Evaluation of basic ship maneuvering characteristics over the range of loading and environmental conditions (fast time simulation) Validation or verification of passage plans through specified channels under a range of environmental conditions (real time simulation) In the fast time simulation mode, the equations are integrated as fast as possible by the computer and the rudder/propulsion system commands are controlled by some predetermined logic. This mode is used to simulate standard definitive maneuvers including turns, zigzags, and spirals. This mode can also be used for simulation of maneuvers controlled by an autopilot. In the real time mode the program integrates equations at a rate, which corresponds to real time, and a visual scene through the computer screen is provided. The visual scene is updated as the ship motion model computes a new ship's position and heading resulting from manual control input based on the pilot's commands (rudder, engine throttle, and tug commands), ship hydrodynamics, and external forces.

The external force capability of the simulator includes effects of wind, waves, currents, banks, shallow water, ship/ship interaction, and tugboats. In addition to the visual scene, the user is provided with navigation information such as speed and heading of the vessel, wind speed and direction, magnitude and direction of current, etc. Sea keeping Performance Assessment The comprehensive consideration of sea keeping performance in the early stages of ship design has been a subject of a wide-ranging research programme at Istanbul Technical University. The result of these studies has been the development of alternative analysis procedures, which allow sea keeping to become a routine part of mono hull form design. The assessment of sea keeping performance depends on three factors, environmental conditions, ship responses and sea keeping criteria. These factors are combined to form a sea keeping performance database, which contains the details of sea keeping characteristics of a given design. The major difficulty in evaluating the sea keeping performance of a ship arises from the stochastic nature of the sea environment. Since the sea conditions and the motions of the ship in waves prevailing at any instant of time cannot be determined exactly, they have to be approximated in a probabilistic manner. Therefore, a stochastic rather than deterministic approach is required to take into account correctly the complexities of the sea environment. The prediction of ship responses in a given sea state is performed in two stages. The first stage is the computation of response amplitude operators (RAOs) in regular waves of unit amplitude. A two-dimensional strip theory based computer program is used for the calculations. Both the theory and the program have been validated with a large number of experimental and full-scale trial results for highspeed warship forms. The environmental conditions are specified by sea state numbers, which are defined as a function of significant wave height, and some related parameters might be included such as fetch and wind speed. When the operational area is not specified a standard ITTC one parameter spectrum is recommended. However, the significant wave height parameter may not be sufficient to represent littoral waters and a second parameter, generally the modal wave period, should also be specified. The RAOs or statistical responses in given sea states may not be sufficient to assess the sea keeping performance of a given design. A realistic assessment should be based on the mission capability of the designs in specified operational areas. In order to assess the effect of sea keeping performance on the mission capability of the vessel the mission requirements need to be translated into sea keeping performance requirements. For example, operation of an ASW helicopter in sea state 5 may be limited with a significant roll angle of 8 degrees. The responses are specified as significant single amplitudes and assumed to be independent of each other and of equal importance. Exceedance of one or more of these criteria at a given speed and heading combination is assumed to preclude operation at those conditions

A realistic way of comparing the sea keeping performance of alternative designs is thought to be the operability indices derived from speed polar plots for each sea state. In order to calculate operability indices, sea keeping responses need to be predicted for each sea state, operational area, ship speed and wave heading. Typical speed polar plots for two alternative designs in sea state 5 are shown in Figure 3, where the concentric circles represent ship speeds and the radial lines represent ship headings relative to the waves. The contour lines are plots of speed-heading combinations at which one of the sea keeping criteria is exceeded, i.e. the ship cannot operate beyond this limit without exceeding the relevant criterion. An envelope defined by the shaded area represents the combinations of speed and heading at which the ship cannot operate without exceeding any of the criteria. These plots can be developed for each operational area and sea state considered and operability indices, defined as the ratio of the clear area to the total area can be calculated. Structures and Vibration Group The Structures and Vibration Group undertakes the calculations necessary for the structural design of a new ship or the evaluation of an existing ship. This group uses a large computer programs inventory, developed at various universities abroad as well as those developed in the ITU Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Faculty. Furthermore, industry standard programs licensed to ITU are used where necessary. The capabilities of the Structures and Vibration Group are summarized below. 1- Scantlings and Structural Properties of Cross-sections Weight optimization and scantlings of structural members, Cross-section properties (the distributions along the ship of static moment, moment of inertia, effective shear area, polar moment of inertia etc.), The distribution along the ship of the design bending moment and the permissible stress according to specified rules. These calculations are carried out using the ITUgemSTATIK program suite. 2- Conventional Longitudinal Strength Analysis The conventional longitudinal strength analysis incorporates the shear force and bending moment distributions along the hull, as well as the deck and keel stresses, the elastic deformation of the hull beam. Longitudinal strength under calm water, wave crest and wave trough conditions, Progressive longitudinal strength calculations for loading and unloading, preparation of the loading manual, Progressive longitudinal strength calculations for floating procedures of a grounded vessel, Longitudinal strength calculations in accordance with a specified classification society or a naval standard (e.g. BV 1040). These calculations are carried out using the ITUgemMUK program suite.

3- Global and Local Vibration Characteristics Vertical, horizontal and torsional resonant frequencies of the hull, The resonant frequencies of grillage systems, panels and bulkheads. These calculations are carried out using a database of a large number of merchant and naval ships with semi-empiric methods. 4- Dynamic Strength Calculations In this section, the behavior of a ship in extreme sea states is analyzed using a 2-D hydro elastic theory developed in England and later in ITU. The representation of the irregular waves by a given sea state and a locality using appropriate wave energy spectra, The calculation of the continuous wave excitation and the transient wave impact forces (slamming pressures and forces), The time series of the dynamic shear force and bending moment values at all required sections along the hull, The time series of rigid and elastic ship motions such as heaving, pitching and vertical deformation, The statistical analysis of the time series and the determination of the "survivalibility condition" with respect to ship speed and sea state. The intermediate results, such as the natural mode shapes and natural frequencies of the hull, vertical velocities and accelerations, slamming pressure histories are used for vibration and sea keeping analyses if required. These calculations are carried out using the ITUDINSIM computer program suite. 5- Detailed Structural Design with Finite Element Method The local and global design of the ship structures are carried out by ANSYS 5.5 FEM program, using 2-D or 3-D models as required. Stress - strain calculations, Vibration analysis, Buckling controls. 6- 3-D Hydro elastic Analysis The 2-D dynamic strength calculations summarized in paragraph 4 are extended to 3-D methods developed in ITU.

Introduction

NCE Maritime is one of six Norwegian Centres of Expertise with a national responsibility for developing the maritime cluster in Norway. Established in lesund the last half of 2006, the NCE is still being developed, also with respect to basic knowledge about the maritime world outside of Norway. The NCE is to a large extent focused on managing, initiating and facilitating R&D cooperation projects, where the parties might be a number of companies or companies and R&D-institution(s), local, national or international. Recruitment is another important field for the Centre. The Norwegian maritime industry today is actively sourcing labour from abroad, while academic competence primarily is sourced locally/nationally. It is expected that the industry will have to source a greater part of its academic abroad. A number of other uses for the intelligence sought are also foreseen, without being specified. NCE Maritime has requested through INs district office in lesund information about maritime teaching and R&D - institutions in a number of countries. The purpose of the exercise is to have a good starting point for cooperation projects and recruitment activities between NCE Maritime and relevant institutions abroad. This report presents the findings of a market scan for the UK (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland). Only institutions with postgraduate (master or PhD) courses and research interests have been included in this report, in accordance with the wishes of NCE.

Language and business environment

We are asked to provide a ranking of the English language skills in the country, ranked on a scale from 1-10. The UK would obviously score 10. We are similarly asked to provide an assessment of the business culture in the UK, compared to the Norwegian one. Both being Northern European countries, the UK and Norway have a lot in common in terms of how business is conducted. However, one could argue that relations tend to be more hierarchical and formal in the UK. The Appendix to this report provides some more detail on this subject in the form of a description of UK business culture.

Design of Multi-Purpose Roll Damping Devices Investigation of optimised probe design using Potential Drop Techniques to determine thinning of metal plates Research: The Marine Research Group includes the Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering Group, the Design Research Centre and the Computational Fluid Dynamics Group. The Marine Group focuses on design orientated research on fast ship forms and on new means of electric propulsion, on the design of large complex products with a whole system and concurrent engineering focus and on the fundamental fluid dynamics of ship hydrodynamics and interactions with ocean waves. There is close co-operation between the groups so that some projects are undertaken by staff from different groups combining together. http://www.mecheng.ucl.ac.uk/research/marine-systems/ The Department concentrates its research under three major research themes: Structural Integrity & Materials, Thermofluids, and Marine Systems.

Within Marine Systems, the following are ongoing research projects: Marine Vehicle Applications Concept studies have been carried out over many years into the application of new marine vehicle types to naval and commercial roles. Recent examples are the suitability of trimarans for use as aircraft carriers, fast sea-lift logistics ships, fast ferries and cruise liners. There have also been many studies into the use of SWATH vessels. These studies are typically carried out as part of the MSc Group Ship Design Exercise, but can be extended in further post-graduate research. Similar concept studies are carried out into submarine design as part of a short Submarine Design Course which is run each year. Trimaran Design Over the past decade UCL has taken a pioneering role in developing the trimaran from a concept which had hitherto been applied only to yacht and powerboat design, to a concept suitable for large powered ships. This covers applications, design methods and engineering science. Marine Vehicle Design Methods The synthesis of a marine vehicle to produce a balanced design requires a method for initial sizing and parametric studies. From this point the iterative analysis, development and optimization of the design may proceed. These methods will vary between marine vehicle types; research is required to understand the similarities and differences which different marine vehicles present. Electric Propulsion Systems In recent years there has been a growth in the number of marine vehicles employing electrical propulsion systems. Electrical propulsion can offer increased reliability, survivability and may be less expensive to operate producing fewer exhaust gas emissions. Electric propulsion is developing with improvements being made in the power density of electrical machines and the power electronic converters that control them.

Electric Ship Integration into Marine Vehicles The research and development into multi-hulled vessels such as the trimaran have shown that some of the naval architecture problems associated with monohulled vessels can be overcome for example upper deck layout. However multi-hulled vessels often have a small centre-hull into which the marine engineer must fit the propulsion system. Electric propulsion can provide the solution taking advantage of recent developments in motor technology and power electronic drive systems to provide high propulsive powers. The Thermofluids Groups research activity covers a wide spectrum of areas of application of thermofluids. From industrial applications such as IC Engines & Fuel Systems and Turbomachinery to environmental applications such as Refrigeration and Air Conditioning and Environmental Fluid Mechanics to medical applications such as Microfluidics and Medical Fluid Mechanics. The Structural Integrity and Materials Group includes the UCL NDE Centre, the Ultrasonics Group and Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering research activities. The NDE Centre specialises in evaluation of NDT & Structural Integrity Monitoring Systems and Structural Integrity and Defect Assessment. The Ultrasonics Group specialises in characterisation of engineering materials and biomaterials, mathematical modelling of ultrasound propagation, characterisation of contrast agents for medical imaging and therapeutics and guided waves for large area structural integrity monitoring. Furthermore, the department's existing activities in the area of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering have recently been strengthened through the appointment of new academic staff, including a chair in Biomaterials. The Structural Integrity and Materials group aims to carry out integrated research considering the holistic understanding for ensuring structural safety and efficacy. This understanding involves the marriage of several scientific disciplines including materials, structures, sensors, reliability and wave physics. Traditional areas of activity have been the ship & offshore structures, power generation, aerospace and biomaterials industries. More recently the group has been successful in developing research activities in new areas such as rail and biomedical applications.

1. Conclusions
There exist a number of maritime teaching and research institutions in the UK. Many of these are of an excellent academic standing and are research leaders in their field. NCE Maritime would do well in approaching one or several of these to explore opportunities for cooperation. The Marine Technology Education Consortium would be a natural starting point for further contact, since it is a consortium of the most important UK universities in this field. However we have had positive feedback from the University of Southampton, Liverpool John Moores, and University College London as well, and believe it would be worthwhile for NCE to approach these as well.

Appendix: UK business culture


Source: http://www.communicaid.com/british-business-culture.asp The United Kingdom is a nation of cultural and ethnic diversity consisting of four countries each with a clear identity: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. A thoroughly multicultural society, the UK continues to blend its rich cultural heritage with a modern and innovative outlook. Knowledge and an appreciation of the basic cultural, ethical and business values of the UK is crucial to any organisation wanting to conduct business in such a varied yet traditional country. British Culture - Key Concepts and values Indirectness - The British, in particular the English, are renowned for their politeness and courtesy. This is a key element of British culture and is a fundamental aspect of British communication style. When doing business in the UK you generally find that direct questions often receive evasive responses and conversations may be ambiguous and full of subtleties. Consequently, it is important to pay attention to tone of voice and facial expression, as this may be an indication of what is really meant. 'Stiff upper lip' - This is a term often used to describe the traditionally British portrayal of reserve and restraint when faced with difficult situations. In British culture open displays of emotion, positive or negative are rare and should be avoided. During meetings, this means your British colleagues will approach business with an air of formality and detachment. Humour - A vital element in all aspects of British life and culture is the renowned British sense of humour. The importance of humour in all situations, including business contexts, cannot be overestimated. Humour is frequently used as a defense mechanism, often in the form of self-depreciation or irony. It can be highly implicit and in this sense is related to the British indirect communication style. The United Kingdom is renowned for its colourful history and strong sense of tradition that has been shaped by a colonial empire, both civil and European wars and an constitutional monarchy. The fourth largest trading nation, the UK is fast becoming Europe's leading business centre. Supported by a long-established system of government and economic stability, the UK is an attractive base for overseas business, offering skills in areas such as research, development and technology. However, in order to operate successfully in the UK business environment, there are a number of important issues to take into consideration both before and during your time there. Working practices in the UK In accordance with British business protocol, punctuality is essential at any business meeting or social event. When making business appointments it is best practice to do so several days in advance. The British are inclined to follow established rules and practices; therefore decision-making is often a slow and systematic process. Structure and hierarchy in UK companies: Today, UK businesses maintain relatively "flat" organisational hierarchies. The principal divide is between managers and other ranks. In general, the board of directors is the principal decision-making unit. Major decisions are made at the very top.

The British prefer to work in the security of a group-established order with which they can identify. Working relationships in the UK UK managers generally favour the establishment of good working relationships with their subordinates. The boss often takes the role of a coach, creating an atmosphere of support and encouragement. Teamwork is very important, however there exists a strong feeling of individual accountability for implementation and error. Business practices in the UK Business meetings in the UK are often structured but not too formal and begin and end with social conversation. First names are used almost immediately with all colleagues. Exceptions are very senior managers. However, you should always wait to be invited to use first names before doing so yourself. Business cards are an essential prop and are usually exchanged. Negotiations and decisions are usually open and flexible. Your British counterparts will favour a win/win approach. British business etiquette (Do's and Don'ts) DO respect personal space. The British value their space and keeping an acceptable distance is advised. DO remember to shake hands on first meetings. It is considered polite to do so. DO make direct eye-contact with your British counterpart, however remember to keep it to a minimum or it could be considered impolite or rude. DON'T ask personal questions regarding your British counterpart's background, occupation or income. DON'T underestimate the importance of humour in all aspects of business in the UK. DON'T forget that instructions are often disguised as polite requests.
