Does the international community accept the risks of human failure to lives, ships and the very vulnerable marine environment? Does the international community accept the already enormous pollution the ships
are causing to the environment: sea and air?

The international community will over the coming years expect and demand a change in the safety at sea. This goal can be reached by diminishing (almost) 100% of human failure by demanding better educated and better trained seafarers and assignment on board based on clear assessments. 

Now is the time for action. A new thrust for the future of simulator training, applied research, and assessment should entail:

• Enhancing applied research with innovative simulators and complex environments
• Having a place for each person who wants to have a prominent role in the maritime industry
