Cooperation and Communication

Cooperation and Communication

WP3 will facilitate a comprehensive, structured and targeted interaction between the project consortium and the outside world. Main focus is project dissemination.


The WP will facilitate a comprehensive, structured, and targeted interaction between the project consortium and the outside world in order to develop regulations and global cooperation by achievement of the following goals:

  1. Ensure take-up of the latest developments in global research, technologies and legislation related to fire and establish cooperation with external parties and projects;
  2. Facilitate for acceptance and consensus with Flag States, maritime authorities and ship owners/operators and establish a science-based global approach to maritime fire safety;
  3. Provide a structured and professional elaboration and communication of proposals related to maritime fire safety to IMO and to other relevant authorities and rule-making bodies;
  4. Inform European citizens, policy makers and the wider European maritime industrial, research and academic communities about the outcomes and the impact of the project.
