Croisières et Voyages

The Maritime Safety Research Centre (MSRC) is an industry-university partnership, involving Strathclyde's Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL), and DNV GL. The world’s first centre of its kind, the MSRC will aim to improve safety at sea through a close collaboration between industry and academia, that targets interdisciplinary, common-threaded research and development.

The Maritime Safety Research Centre was officially opened this week by the IMO Secretary General Kitak Lim, who looked at how the MSRC could play a role in the shift of maritime safety from empirical to risk-informed legislation and goal-based standards. Mr Lim was joined at the ceremony by Harri Kulovaara, Executive Vice President Maritime & Newbuilding, RCCL, Lanfranco Benedetti, EC DG Mobility & Transport, Maritime Safety, Professor Sir
