PROJECTS AND NETWORKS IN MARITIME EDUCATION AND TRAINING.
THE AMRIE CONTRIBUTION



JACQUES MAZIERES

Direttore AMRIE

I am very pleased that the Region of Liguria organised this FEMAR Conference and that the attendance is so important.

I would first make a short presentation of AMRIE for those of you who do not heard of us.

1 - AMRIE, the Alliance of Maritime Regional Interests in Europe is an initiative of Members of the European Parliament, to contribute to establishing an "Integrated Maritime Strategy".

Our sixty members represent all maritime actors (regional and local Authorities, ports, Research Institutes and universities, training organisations, Chambers of commerce, shipbuilders and other industries, shipowners, qualification societies, trade-unions), which gives us a wide expertise on every maritime item.. We have representatives from each maritime European country (plus Isles of Man and Malta)

Our means of action are

Lobbying and Policy Development to influence and shape policy-making process affecting the European maritime economy and to ensure the favourable development of issues such as maritime transport and short sea shipping, maritime industries and shipyards, security at sea, marine environmental care, research and development, training, information society, spatial planning, etc.;

Networking between our members and other maritime actors to launch common projects such as MARIS and FEMAR.

2 - Indeed, FEMAR is an AMRIE Initiative

In November 1994, when the G7 was preparing a wide project for Information Society, AMRIE suggested that there should be a specific project for the use of information technology in the maritime sector. It was called MARIS, the MARitime Information Society. This idea was accepted by Commissioner Bangemann and in June 1995, MARIS was adopted by the G7 as one of the 11 pilot projects for Information Society

In November 1995, the AMRIE General Assembly launched FEMAR, a project linking maritime training and Information Society. From 1996 to1998, the AMRIE Specialist Working Group on Centres of Excellence and the AMRIE Secretariat promoted FEMAR beside the European Commission, the European Parliament and all European Organisations.

In July 1997, the AMRIE Genoa Office published a "Methodological Approach to training and updating" (see the presentation made by Mario Carminati).

In September 1998, the G7, on the suggestion of the European Commission DG III, included FEMAR as the 5th horizontal sub-project of MARIS and in November 1998, AMRIE was asked by DG III to be the "focal point" for FEMAR and to establish the user requirements. This constituted official recognition of the role played by AMRIE in the conception and launching of FEMAR.

Today is the FEMAR Conference but I am sure it is only one step and that further important developments will now occur.

3 - FEMAR projects in which AMRIE is involved.

AMRIE is involved in several FEMAR projects, on which I shall now give short information:

A. MARSK Project: Jonathan Williams made a presentation just before my speech.

B. ECOPORT Project: this Project is funded under the Leonardo da Vinci Programme. The partners are: Commet Li.Sa, AMRIE, Golder Associates, the Ports of Genoa, Savona and Nantes St Nazaire, Marintech South and the European Federation of Transports (EFT).

On the other hand the objectives of the ECOPORT Project are:

  • identifying environmental issues in port areas or in connection with maritime transport;
  • analysing environment skills required;
  • defining environmental training courses needed;
  • preparing plans for potential training actions.

The Interim Report is under evaluation and the project will be achieved in April 2000

The role of AMRIE is to ensure the dissemination of results: we gave information in our Newsletter, there was a presentation during our 8th High Level Conference in Southampton and we shall organise a large presentation in the European Parliament during the 1st quarter 2000.

The next step should be ECOPORT 2, which was presented in March 1999 for funding under the Leonardo da Vinci Programme. The aim is to extend the project to more ports and to realise final training package

A. METNET, Thematic Network on Maritime Education, Training and Certification:

This Thematic Network is funded by DG Transport. The final contract is under preparation and should be signed early next year.

The Steering Committee comprises the World Maritime University in Malmö, AMRIE, the Southampton Institute and CETEMAR in Spain. There are 16 other members and liaisons with governments, MET Institutions, Maritime Industries.

METNET objectives are to:

  • improve and harmonise training of ship officers;
  • develop better syllabi/curricula and training courses for students;
  • prepare a common approach to certification;
  • cluster the exploitation of results from FP4.
  • The roles of AMRIE are:
  • Dissemination of results;
  • Liaison with FEMAR/MARIS;
  • Exploitation of modern technologies in training;
  • Organisation of workshops with East European Countries and non-EU Mediterranean Countries.

D. MERIT, Thematic Network for Maritime Education and Training Raising Industrial needs of Information Technologies: this new Thematic Network has been presented in September 1999 for funding by DG Information Society. A decision is still awaited.

The partners are METTLE, AMRIE, and 14 other organisations (6 being AMRIE members).

If accepted, the objectives of MERIT will be to complete the work of METNET in maritime sectors other than transport by:

  • improving education and training in several maritime industrial sectors;
  • through Information Technology tools;
  • and clustering European and nationally funded training projects.

The roles of AMRIE will be:

  • Clustering co-ordination of training projects;
  • Dissemination of results.

E. FILMS, Flexible Infrastructure for Learning in the Marine sector: the objective of FIMS is to launch the foundations of a Maritime Virtual University.

This project has been presented to DG Information Technology under the 1st Call for Proposals of FP5 but was rejected by the evaluators. It will be improved by taking into account the comments of the evaluators and re-presented in the 2nd Call for Proposals.

The partners are the University of Plymouth, AMRIE and 11 other participants (2 being AMRIE members).

The role of AMRIE is the dissemination of results.



AMRIE, l'Alleanza per gli interessi delle Regioni Marittime in Europa è un'iniziativa dei membri del Parlamento Europeo per contribuire alla nascita di una "strategia marittima integrata".

I 60 membri rappresentano tutti i soggetti marittimi (Istituzioni regionali e locali, porti, istituti di ricerca e università, enti di formazione, Camere di Commercio, imprese cantieristiche e altre società, armatori, associazioni di categoria, sindacati), condizione che ci garantisce un'ampia gamma di esperienze in ogni settore marittimo. I membri provengono, inoltre, da ogni regione marittima europea, con in più il contributo delle Isole di Man e di Malta.

Le attività di AMRIE si concentrano su due aspetti principali: lobbying e proposte di politiche dirette allo sviluppo del settore marittimo, creazione e rafforzamento dei legami fra i membri e con altri attori marittimi allo scopo di varare progetti comuni come MARIS e FEMAR.

A questo scopo sono stati varie le azioni nel corso degli anni.

Nel novembre 1994 durante le discussioni in seno al G7 in merito alla preparazione di un vasto progetto sulla Società dell'Informazione AMRIE suggerì che avrebbe potuto esserci uno specifico progetto per l'uso delle IT nel campo marittimo; questo progetto fu chiamato MARIS -The MARitime Information Society-. L'idea fu accettata dal Commissario Bangermann e nel giugno 1995 MARIS fu adottato dal G7 come uno degli 11 progetti pilota nell'ambito della Società dell'informazione.

Nel novembre 1995 l'Assemblea Generale di AMRIE lanciò FEMAR, un progetto il cui scopo è legare le problematiche relative alla formazione marittima con la Società dell'Informazione. Dal 1996 al 1998 AMRIE promosse FEMAR presso le Istituzioni dell'Unione Europea.

Nel luglio del 1997 l'Ufficio AMRIE di Genova pubblicò un rapporto dal titolo "Approccio Metodologico alla formazione e all'aggiornamento" (vedere l'intervento di Mario Carminati).

Nel settembre 1998 il G7, su suggerimento della DGIII della Commissione europea, incluse FEMAR nel progetto MARIS come V sotto-progetto, e nel novembre 1998 AMRIE divenne, su richiesta della DGIII, il punto di riferimento per FEMAR e per tutti coloro interessati nel progetto. Questo fatto costituì la sanzione ufficiale al ruolo di AMRIE nella concezione e nel lancio di FEMAR.

AMRIE è a tutt'oggi coinvolta in parecchi progetti FEMAR, di cui solo alcuni già approvati dalle competenti DG della Commissione.

Detti progetti sono: il Progetto MARSK, il Progetto ECOPORT (che ha per scopo la tutela dell'ambiente marittimo nelle aree portuali o connesse al trasporto marittimo e la preparazione di piani per eventuali azioni di formazione in merito), il METNET -Network Tematico sull'Educazione Marittima, la Formazione e la Certificazione - (relativo sia al miglioramento e all'armonizzazione della formazione per gli ufficiali di nave, che alla preparazione di una comune procedura di certificazione), il MERIT -Network Tematico sull'Educazione Marittima e la Formazione relativa ai crescenti bisogni delle Industrie di IT- (gli obiettivi di MERIT completeranno quelli di METNET rafforzando la proposta educativa e formativa nei settori industriali marittimi al di fuori del trasporto), FILMS -Struttura Flessibile per l'Apprendimento nel Settore Marittimo- (il cui obiettivo è la fondazione di una Università Marittima Virtuale).

Per tutte queste iniziative il ruolo principale di AMRIE è la diffusione dei risultati.
