Economic challenge and new maritime risks management: what blue growth?

5th International Human Sea - Marisk Symposium

Ve colloque international Human Sea - Marisk

*  *  *

Published on Friday, July 08, 2016 by João Fernandes

Summary

New energies to forage at sea, deeper drillings further and further from the coast, increasingly bigger ships, these are the challenges that man must overcome to accomplish “blue growth”. There are economic opportunities to grab, but also new risks concerning safety and security, and marine environmental protection. These new challenges will be at the heart of the 5th edition of the Human Sea – Marisk symposium, a major event bringing together the best international experts and taking into account the latest scientific and technological advances in the maritime and port sector.

The methods of management of economic activities are complex at sea: the offshore oil and gas industry, to the setting up of platforms and other installations, to the development of fixed and soon floating wind farms, hydrokinetic means… The more traditional thematics linked to navigation should not be excluded given the increase in the size of the container ships and liners. Safety and security issues will be questioned through the concept of High Reliability Organization (HRO).
