HERRING - Joint cross-border actions for the sustainable management of a natural resource. This research project focuses on the development of strategy options and joint recommendations for an improved management of coastal areas as spawning habitats. The goal is to improve the sustainable management of the South Baltic region's ecosystem resource herring and with it, the reproductive capacity of the species and the success of future sustainable herring fisheries. 


The  IMPACT (Integrated Maritime Progressive Assessment and Calibration Tool) project will design a set of realistic maritime scenarios to be performed in maritime simulator/work station clusters. The scenario outcomes will be recorded by a refined data collection system collecting simulator data, expert observation reports, voice and data communication, and time stamped digital photographs and video sequences. The result from each scenario will be presented with a visualization system and build the basis for evaluation and assessment.


The project ADOPTMAN - ADvanced Planning for OPTimised Conduction of Coordinated MANoeuvres in Emergency Situations - belongs to the European 7th framework based MARTEC call for collaborative research projects. It is a three years Swedish-German project under the leadership of World Maritime University, Research Group Maritime Risk Governance. The involved partners are SSPA AB Göteborg and Stena Line Scandinavia AB as well as from Germany Marinesoft GmbH, Hochschule Wismar, Maritime Simulation Centre Warnemünde and the Institute for Ship’s Safety.

Baltic Master II

Baltic Master II is recognized as a flagship project in the European Union’s Baltic Sea Strategy and is an international project with partners from the nine different Baltic coastal countries. The project aims to improve maritime safety by integrating local and regional stakeholders. The project Lead Partner is the Blekinge Region (Sweden) and the World maritime University is a Partner under several projects that focus on the Baltic Sea Region and how it is affected by issues concerning pollution prevention, coastal zone management, and on-land responses to an oil spill originating at sea.

North Sea Ballast Water Opportunity

The North Sea Ballast Water Opportunity Project (NSBWO) supports regional cohesion, innovation and future strategies in ballast water policies, management and addressing aquatic invasive species. The project focuses on coherence and harmonization of implementation of the IMO Ballast Water Management Convention on, including addressing such issues as monitoring and enforcement, innovation in scientific and technological solutions, and strategies to reduce ship-borne invasions.
