MPCS Final Event

The Marine Pollution Control Simulator (MPCS) is a cloud-based tool that can be easily accessed via different platforms (mobile phones, tablets or laptops), enabling training, exercises and performance evaluation of marine pollution control at various levels.
This project, funded under the Union Civil Protection Mechanism programme (UCPM), is made up of a consortium of 4 national partners and 1 Spanish partner.
The consortium includes Qualiseg - Engenharia e Gestão, lda, a Portuguese company that develops research and innovation projects. The Direção Geral da Autoridade Maritima Nacional through the Direção de Combate à Poluição do Mar, a public organisation whose mission is to establish technical procedures for monitoring and combating pollution of the sea, as well as coordinating and directing operations to combat pollution of the sea. The University of Coimbra through the Faculty of Science and Technology, which through its research units has played an active role in creating knowledge and transferring it to society. The Instituo Profissional de Transportes e Logística da Madeira, a vocational school that has been developing vocational training courses in the maritime area for years. And the EVM Group, a Spanish partner dedicated to developing technology and innovation applied to various areas.
This two-year project, which began in March 2022, is now coming to an end with a sense of mission accomplished, since the prototype is ready and has passed the tests carried out, making it a tool that can be useful to various organisations in a wide range of fields.
In this circumstance, we will also make a public presentation of the project to organisations and the community, which will take place on 22 February 2024, from 10am to 12pm at the Vasco da Gama Auditorium.
This event will take place in a hybrid format, so those interested can attend in person or via teams, witch the link will be made available closer to the event.
Registrations must be made by 19 February through the link in the image.

The Role of Cluster in AKT

Within the scope of MarLEM Consortium, Fórum Oceano organized an online workshop on March 10, targeted to maritime clusters and the role they could play in one of the outputs of MarLEM Project: the Atlantic Knowledge Triangle - AKT.

"AKT intends to become a Collaborative Platform, focused in the Atlantic Area, with subsequent expansion to the other EU maritime basins, that promotes effective initiatives and opportunities for Knowledge creation and dissemination. By aggregating entities from Academia, Authority, and Industry, AKT will become the adequate space for creating ideas, raising consortia, launching projects, and boosting, as a final purpose, the competitiveness of Atlantic and European Blue Economy.

Maritime Clusters are the strongest industrial networks where skill gaps can be identified and integrated solutions can be created and applied to the front-end of maritime sustainable development.

So far, these networks are the main vehicle for dissemination across industry, seeking collaboration with the governance authorities and establishing cooperation with education and training institutions, as well as dedicated research and innovations centres."

The purpose of this workshop was to address the role maritime clusters could play at AKT future developments, providing very important learning, discussion and exchange of ideas. Thank you all for this interesting session!



Qualiseg was present at M4ML Project Roundtable on NEW SKILLS FOR MARITIME LOGISTICS. The event was held on 3 of November at the Port of Sines Administration premises in Sines. It was also an opportunity to disseminate the Master Maritime Logistic (MML) jointly promoted NOVA SST and Portuguese Naval Academy as part of MARLEM Project. The third phase of MML applications still open until 15th November.

The blue economy has enormous potential to generate growth and many new jobs in the coming years, but to do so, the training of human resources with key competences that allow them to gaining a competitive advantage in the face of today's challenges is key. In this sense, the MML is an innovative master's program in Portugal aimed to address these challenges.

M4ML project is funded by the EEA Grants under the Blue Growth Programme.

Through the European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway are partners, in the internal market, of the Member States of the European Union.

As a way of promoting a continuous and balanced strengthening of the economic and trade relations, the parties of the European Economic Area Agreement have established a Multiannual Financial Mechanism, known as the EEA Grants.

The EEA Grants aim to reduce the economic and social disparities in the European Economic Area and strengthen the bilateral relations between beneficiary and donor countries.

For the period 2014-2021, a total contribution of 2.8 thousand million euros has been agreed to 15 beneficiary countries. Portugal will benefit from an amount of 102.7 million euros.
