A Joint Nordic Research project "Effecive and Safe Ships" is
presented. The project is aiming to develop methods and tools for
quantitative evaluation fo ship safety. This report is the report
of the preliminary phase where the plan for the main project is
developed. The objectives of the project are described. The areas
of safety that are presented are collisions, groundings, cargo
shifting and ship fire. The areas of lack of knowledge are
identified and the tasks within each subproject suggested. The
proposal for the main project is presented in the summary.
Background material of the state-of-the art is given in the
appendices. The project is planned to take three years from the
start. There are 28 tasks and the total volume is 18 personyears,
or 6.3 MFIM. A scientific approach will be used in performing the
tasks and some of them may be subjects for post graduate studies.
A close co-operation between the participating organisations is
suggested. Each subproject is managed in one country but
individual tasks maybe shared between the participants.
