Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (CEO Lee Seong-geun) collaborated with world-leading organizations to ‘ Industry, academia, and research’ technology consultative bodies will be formed and global hyper-cooperation will begin to secure technology related to the shipbuilding and offshore industry.
Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) announced on the 22nd that it will take the first step in cooperative research activities by forming the ‘Eco-friendly Smart Ship Fluid Technology Global R&D Network (tentative name)’ with major domestic and foreign industries, universities and research institutes to strengthen competitiveness related to eco-friendly and smart ship technologies.
This consultative body, led by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, consists of:
- Seoul National University(Korea)
- University of Michigan(USA)
- Strathclyde University(UK)
- Research Institute
- SINTEF Ocean(Norway)
This is the ‘global R&D alliance’ composed of a total of 15 institutions with an international reputation.
The council aims to lead the global technology in related fields by jointly responding to environmental regulations related to the shipbuilding and offshore industry and the latest technologies such as autonomous vessels, especially core technologies in the field of fluid dynamics, and conducting world-class collaborative research.
- Regular seminars such as webinars
- Share the latest research trends
- Collaborate on joint research projects
- Participate in industry and government-level research projects
- Joint response to international regulations
- Cooperation on common model experiments
- Exchange of research personnel
- Joint academic activities embark on
With the recent economic recovery of the global shipbuilding and offshore industry and the increase in demand for eco-friendly high-tech ships, the need for new technology development is rapidly increasing. Accordingly, in the case of the domestic shipbuilding industry, there was an opinion that the level of R&D for various element technologies should be further raised in addition to the shipbuilding capabilities and experience that they already have.
It is expected that this formation will serve as a representative example of a ‘global R&D hyper-cooperation model’ suitable for the world’s top-ranked Korean shipbuilding industry, as the world’s best domestic and foreign major institutions and universities jointly respond to technological development and share the results. is evaluated to be
Dong-gyu Choi, head of the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Research Institute, said, “We will use this international joint research as an opportunity to once again inform the global market of the status of ‘technology DSME’.” “At the same time, as a global leader in the shipbuilding and offshore industry, I will do my best to keep it going.”
