Lighthouse first phase

Ligthouse first phase fostered long-term funded research and education. The first phase consisted of six different theme areas, called Ships, which are presented below.

Business Ship was led by Johan Woxenius and took up the research into the shipping industry’s conditions that had long been the centre of attention at the School of Business, Economics and Law at University of Gothenburg. Today there is continuing active research within four areas connected to the shipping business. Examples of Business Ship projects were SKEMA and KnowMe.

Cargo ShipCargo Ship is led by Professor Jonas Ringsberg and focuses on the ship as a cargo carrier/transporter. Joint research projects study, analyze and develop effective and innovative carrier systems, but also include interaction with ports and other parts of the logistics chain. The research projects focus on systems, sea going qualities, ship design and engineering, arrangements on board as well as loading and unloading. Example of Cargo Ship projects are BESST and S-LÄSS.

Eco Ship deals with research and education with focus on a sustainable resource use and minimization of environmental impact from shipping and maritime activities. Examples of Eco Ship research projects are Safe and Efficient Shipping and Offshore Operation in Arctic Regions and Effship.

Ergo Ship consists of parts of the Ship Work Environment and Safety division at the Department of Shipping and Marine Technology at Chalmers University of Technology. Ergo Ship also collaborates closely with the Department of Product and Production Development at Chalmers. ITERATE and MUNIN are examples of Ergo Ship projects.

Info Ship was founded in 2012 and is led by Per-Erik Holmberg, Business Manager at Viktoria Swedish ICT. Examples of projects within Info Ship are GOTRIS, MONALISA 2.0 and MONALISA.

Safe Ship is led by Mikael Hägg and covers Lighthouse research and development in engineering, organization and education in the areas preventive safety, increased survival and evacuation of damaged ships. ACCSEAS is an example of a project Safe Ship participates in.
