The maritime safety research program (MarSafe)

MarSafe is a research program that encompasses all researchers at the Department of Maritime studies at Stord/Haugesund University College (SHUC). The program focuses on risk and safety within the maritime industry and investigates organizational and operational aspects of how risk and safety is managed.

Research projects

Research team

Researchers attached to MarSafe all work closely with industry partners and are involved in solving research questions that have been formulated in close cooperation with them.

The research is also highly relevant for their teaching, and both theories, research questions and results are brought to bear on what and how they teach.

The researchers participating in the MarSafe program are all involved in research projects that also involve other researchers at HSH, as well as researchers from external institutions, both nationally and internationally.

MarSafe researchers have a variety of academic backgrounds and investigate specific research topics and questions.
