-- SMTF-RISE, CELESTE program --

Date: December 14, 2022
Time: 09:00-12.00 (with Christmas breakfast)
Where: Isbolaget, Donsö
Language: Workshop will be held in English
Workshop incl. Christmas breakfast is free of charge

Welcome to this Christmas breakfast and interactive workshop! 

We will have an opening section with breakfast and a workboats-related section with a dedicated presentation and group discussions with members of the maritime industry cluster and research institutes regarding the future of workboats. 

This is an excellent opportunity for networking and initiating new research project ideas that address industry issues regarding workboats in terms of seakeeping and hull design, crew comfort and performance, propulsion, onboard equipment, navigation, maintenance, communication, etc.

The presentations will be streamed online (the workshop discussions will be on site only)


Opening session

09:00-09:30 Christmas breakfast is served
09:30-09:35 Introduction to the CELESTE program and event
09:30-10:00 Mercy Ships - this will be sent by link

Workboats session

10:00-10:30 Marion Zu, KTH, Seakeeping criteria of workboats (- this will be sent by link)
10:30-11:45 Workshop discussions on the future of workboats (only on-site)
11:45-12:00 Closing remarks

Stefan Sonesson,  Sverigechef,  Mercy Ships
Mercy Ships
Stefan Sonesson berättar om Global Mercy, världens största civila sjukhusfartyg.
I början av 2023 är detta världsunika fartyg helt klart att gå ner till Senegal för sin första hjälpinsats.
Stefan kommer berätta om status för fartyget, Mercy Ships hjälpinsats, ge en inblick i olika volontärsroller samt ge exempel hur några västsvenska företag nu satsar på Mercy Ships i sitt CSR-arbete.

Nicole has a background in organizational & social psychology and a Ph.D. in Maritime Human Factors from the Chalmers University of Technology. She is currently involved in research projects regarding transitions into sustainable and innovative technologies, electrification, digitalization, and automation; as well as projects regarding ship design, or shoreside operations, etc. from an organizational and social perspective.
Nicole will support SMTF / RISE in the continuation of the CELESTE networking program alongside Fredrik von Elern.
Marion Zu, Ph.D. Student
Marion Zu
About Marion Zu:
Marion Zu is a Ph.D. Student in Naval Architecture - Seakeeping at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Her research aims to develop seakeeping evaluation criteria that ensure a better and safe working environment for the vessel crew. The crew are negatively affected by vessel motions. These motions affect the crew biomechanically, can disrupt their performance and, consequently, the overall operability of a vessel. Addressing undesirable movements impacting task performance in the early design of vessels will ensure maximum operability. This is achieved by a systematic approach to seakeeping analysis with the right set of seakeeping evaluation criteria.
