Dear partners, please find below some updated information about SFI Smart Maritime.,


Monday October 8: Press conference at Norwegian Environment Agency.

Dr Helene Muri will, together with other climate researchers, present the main results of the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C to the Minister of Climate and Environment Ola Elvestuen. More information 


Network meeting, 16-17 October

Program and registration information are available online. We are currently 25 registered participants. SFI management will give you an update on the progress so far, insight on Smart Maritime goals and future plans. More information and input documents will be distributed prior to the meeting.   


Smart Maritime Board and Scientific Advisory Committee

Smart Maritime management team received members of the Board and the scientific Advisory Committee for 2 full working days in Trondheim on September 19 and 20. The purpose was to assess the current progress at SFI Smart Maritime, receive feedback and advice for further adjustments, and by that preparing for the Midway evaluation.  Read more…

  • Smart Maritime is hosting NTNU MSc student from NTNU Astrid Vamråk Solheim this summer. She will study the influence on applying different weather data sources when evaluating hydrodynamic performance from numerical routing approaches (Gymir). She will also look into issues related to manoeuvrability at low speeds in adverse conditions.
  • Anna Ringvold from NTNU IndEcol is leaving Smart Maritime this summer. We are grateful for her significant contribution to Smart Maritime, notably the first version of the model MariTEAM (Maritime Transport Environmental Assessment Model), and wish her the best of luck!
  • New PhD project on speed loss and added power due to steering and course instability, using a combination of numerical simulation and in-service data. WP2 is currently recruiting a new PhD student focusing on ship performance monitoring and optimization.
