NEXT GEN Workshops Address Burning Issues in a Changing World; 24th, 25th and 26th October 2017, Southampton

A series of one day NEXT GENERATION Workshops are being held 'back to back' at the Grand Harbour hotel and conference venue overlooking the port of Southampton on 24th, 25th and 26th October 2017.

The NEXT GEN programme combines a group of dynamic international presenters with panel discussions. Opening sessions for each Workshop feature expertise from heads of UK Border Force, Ministry of Defence, RNLI Design and Engineering team.

On day one the Shock Mitigation Solutions Workshop theme considers 'How Shock Mitigation By All Means Improves Efficiency.' Topics look beyond simply complying with vibration directives or unrealistic health and safety objectives that are hard to apply in the maritime workplace.

On day two the RIB and High Speed Craft Workshop theme looks at 'Boat and Equipment Procurement in a Changing World.' Topics include Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) solutions, through life support of fleets and balancing the need for speed with reliability and durability.

On day three the Systems Safety and Equipment Workshop focuses on 'Identifying and Avoiding Single Points of Failure at Sea.' Improving situational awareness is an emerging theme. Design led redundancy is essential for critical tasks including power, navigation and communications.

The fast moving Workshop style programme brings together an international group of experts armed with the latest knowledge to identify problems that affect the sub IMO / sub 24 metre maritime sector worldwide and highlight potential solutions. The unique knowledge gained from NEXT GEN presentations and panel discussions will help to shape decisions that lead to improvements for in-service equipment and procurement.

NEXT GEN Workshop days are relevant to workboats, pilot boats, patrol boats, search & rescue, survey vessels, wind farm support, superyacht tenders, training and charter vessels. Attendees include professional and military organisations, boat builders, equipment manufacturers, service providers, classification and standards organisations.

Supporters of the event include Southampton Marine & Maritime Institute, University of Southampton, UK Maritime Pilots Association, British Marine and SSA whose members get 20% discount.
