Period: 1.12.2020 - 16.1.2024

Innehåll: A multidisciplinary collaboration between Universities to ensure high level
education in the era of autonomous shipping.

Increasing level of automation and digitalization has an impact on the whole
society reflecting on the needed skills of work force as well as education
including the Finnish maritime cluster. Fast pace of changes and technological
development in the field raises the need for constant skill and knowledge base
update. Hence, requiring also agility from the education system to adapt and
provide education accordingly.

To ensure, that the skill base of Finnish maritime cluster is constantly up to
date AutoMare EduNet has been created. It is a multidisciplinary collaboration
between Universities to meet the educational needs of autonomous shipping
emerging from the Finnish Maritime cluster. For the competitive advantage of
Finnish maritime cluster high level of horizontal, multidisciplinary education
and expertise is needed rather than focusing on vertical specialization. This
can be achieved through collaboration and increased level of information
exchange between the experts in various fields.

Even though the autonomous ships are not sailing today, the work for
establishing needed knowledge and expertise base should start now
