   Promotion of the seafaring profession and sea shipping


Seafaring and shortsea services
Young people are no longer attracted by a maritime career and Europe is in danger of losing its valuable seafaring skill base.  This has implications for both sea and shore based employment.  

A key issue for recruitment and retention is the lack of continuing professional education and training offered to mariners in a flexible manner at the ship and ashore.  The future IMO training requirements now looming large will further impact the time and expense involved with seafarer training. Adapting an e-learning approach to support the professional development of seafarers could provide an effective solution since broadband access is becoming more and more common onboard ship. 

Other ship-borne applications to improve working and living conditions on board through remote access to shore facilities are also feasible and play an important part in the whole seafarer experience.
