Dealing with various issues in the wider Maritime Safety and Environmental Administration specialization, he is also appointed as WMU's Project Officer for the EU funded PROMERC initiative (Protection Measures for Merchant Ships against criminal abduction and extortion).
TRAINMOS II is the continuation of the TrainMoS Global Project, which aims at supporting the EC Priority Project Motorways of the Sea (MoS), promoting the EU multi-modal transport system and enabling a smart, sustainable and inclusive connection of the European regions and neighbouring countries.
TRAINMOS II takes into account the emerging needs in terms of transport and sustainability, as well as the challenges identified in the European Maritime Area, building upon the knowledge and the IT tools already generated in TRAINMOS I, improving them and covering a whole new range of topics.
TRAINMOS II focuses on and delivers proper training to the human element of Motorways of the Sea (MoS), essential to achieve the safe, secure and sustainable maritime and logistic operations that are instrumental for European competitiveness.
WMU has been invited to participate in TRAINMOS II EU project, by the Università degli Studi di Genova, as consultant. The role of WMU will be to define the methodology and contents with which to develop an educational model, including curricula, schedules and learning objectives to help instructors to develop training programs that meet the standards of the STCW Convention for Seafarers within the field of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN T).
