Project

The program focuses on the impact of new technologies in offshore activities, with a view to the refounding of maritime law and the law of the sea. The development of human activities at sea has led to a transformation of the Law of the Sea and Maritime Law. The main purpose of law is to civilize the new activities opened up by technological innovations.

The development of illegal activities at sea questions the competences of States and their cooperation, which was the subject of a symposium in October 2015. Legal issues can be identified from offshore activities, innovations and technical developments. Marine Renewable Energies are a good example of ongoing innovations. The Human Sea - Marisk Symposium of October 2016 addressed these innovations as well as issues of maritime and port safety and security and more specifically of cybersecurity through the notion of High Reliability Organizations at sea (HRO).

The theme of technological innovations shall be continued in 2017, particularly through drones and remote-controlled ships, biodiversity issues on the high seas, before a return to legal questions at the end of the program for the final symposium scheduled for early October 2018. Is to participate, in cooperation with a doctor in law and management sciences, in the implementation of the 4th workpackage (WP) devoted to current and future developments of new technologies, in the exploitation of the continental shelf resources, living resources, multi-purpose platforms, new tools for marine research, pollution and ocean governance issues.
