- Dynamic barrier management
- Emergency response process and systems
- Total resilience of marine systems
- Intact/damage stability of ships and offshore assets
- Fire protection of ships and offshore assets
- Accident/incident data reporting and processing
- Safety culture
- Safety, security, environmental footprint and logistics of marine autonomous systems
- Digital Twins for enhancing safety
- Ship Design for Safety

For more information please contact the centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our mission is to support the development and nurture the implementation of Life-Cycle Risk Management, accounting rationally and formally for all cost-effective measures of risk reduction that lead to sustainable cost-effective-safety-improvement for new and existing ships and offshore assets. We're also supporting the development of a modern regulatory framework to support and nurture safety culture.
The MSRC is comprised from a partnership between:
- the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering here at Strathclyde
- Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
- DNV GL Classification Society
Together we're a world-class centre of excellence, shaping the future of maritime safety.
