Chalmers department Mechanical and Maritime Sciences tops the list when the shipping site Fathom News lists the world's key universities in maritime research. "Chalmers is also linked to Lighthouse, which provides research and network platforms that support maritime research and projects" the site writes.
Fathom News, which is part of English Fathom Maritime Intelligence has listed eight universities that are seen as key actors in the field of advanced marine research with strong links to the maritime industry.
When it comes to Chalmers and Lighthouse Fathom News writes:
”This Swedish university is involved in a wide range of projects and research initiatives and is linked to the Lindholmen Science Park that allows industry, academy and public sector to run research and development projects in transport, ICT and the media. A comprehensive test simulator for marine transport and navigation is based here to help develop sustainable transport and electric propulsion.
Chalmers is also connected to the Lighthouse project, which provides research and networking platforms to support maritime research and projects. The project serves to develop Sweden as a key player in sustainable shipping through innovation in logistics, navigation, energy efficiency and alternative fuels.”
