The baseline for energy usage and emission level is to a large degree set with the the ship design. As such, to meet the challenges to reduce energy usage and emission levels from shipping, a continuous line of new ship designs are required. This project will contribute both with new knowledge of low energy and emission ship design, as well as the education of personell with confidence and background to challenge low energy and emission ship design that can become key personnel in the maritime industry fo r developing novel solutions for energy and emission reduction.The project aims at creating world-leading competence in advanced ship design methodology by bringing together expertise in ship design with expertise in the various specialized disciplines that ship design relies on. Furthermore, the project will involve students at different levels in this process. Thus, the project will produce both new knowledge and tools in environmentally friendly ship design as well young people with expert knowledge in this field. The project will contribute to preserving and enhancing the position of Norway as a global maritime knowledge and innovation hub, and will stimulate the innovation process in that respect at the Department of marine technology at NTNU, wh ich is the main supplier of master candidates of maritime technology in Norway.
