THE IMPACT OF THE NEW ONBOARD TECHNOLOGIES ON MARITIME EDUCATION AND TRAINING SCHEMES IN EUROPE: SOME FINDINGS FROM THE 'METHAR' PROJECT. COMMENT

This paper reports some analyses put forward in the context of the METHAR Project. The aim of METHAR, which ran over 3 years until the end of 1999, was to contribute to the improvement of the Maritime Education and Training (MET) systems, as well as the harmonization of them at a European Level. This study attempted to evaluate the impact of the new technologies used onboard ships on the MET systems in Europe and to identify future training needs. This issue was tackled by developing an ad-hoc methodology based upon the analysis of the responses to questionnaires sent to a number of operators involved in the maritime sector all over Europe, specifically ship owners, marine equipment manufacturers, pilots, and port managers. Results enabled the identification of some types of impacts that were named organizational and operational. Moreover, a general evaluation scheme was developed as a tool for highlighting the structure and the characteristics of the impacts considered.
