Realisation and Demonstration of Advanced Material Solutions
for Sustainable and Efficient Ships

The RAMSSES project aims to show the benefits of advanced materials in maritime applications by implementing 13 market-driven demonstrator cases.

The entire process chain and a wide range of applications (structural components, equipment, ship integration, repair) are covered. Installation and assessment of demonstrators on shore or on board will reveal the high technology readiness. The test program, based on risk assessment and supervised by rule making bodies, targets on ensuring relevance for commercial approval beyond the project.

While demonstrators will support commercialisation of specific products, RAMSSES is also engaged strategically in enabling more rapid and agile material innovation in the European Maritime industry. The first key element is a knowledge repository for test data and best practice procedures, allowing reuse of such information for similar future cases. Secondly, standardised risk scenarios will help easing approval processes, and finally a new materials innovation platform will enhance continuous technology transfer within the maritime sector and beyond.
