Workshop Overview

Given the many competing demands on European and neighbouring marine areas, just how open can the open waters of the North Sea remain to shipping for the future?

What solutions can be found to maintain and promote maritime accessibility across the North Sea with safe and efficient access to ports?

As the sea room for ships to manoeuvre decreases due to other uses, how can increased congestion be avoided and the risk of vessel collisions and groundings be reduced?

Implementing e-Navigation offers a range of solutions, but will it become necessary to restrict shipping to a confined network of sea-lanes?

Your views matter and can help the ACCSEAS project make a real difference to future maritime safety, efficient berth-to-berth shipping operations, environmental protection

Topics be covered include:-

  • Introduction to ACCSEAS
  • The North Sea today and 20 years in the Future
  • Workshop 1: Identifying North Sea Navigation Issues and Problems
  • The North Sea: a Regional e-Navigation test-bed for the EU
  • Workshop 2: Identifying potential e-Navigation solutions for the North Sea
  • Panel Discussion of Workshop: How can the lessons learnt in the North Sea be transferred to other EU and neighbouring waters?
