Ships' life-cycle Online Conference 2021

31 March-1 April 2021

Submit your Abstract before 8 February 2021

Drydock training


With an increasing competition in the global market and rising environmental regulations, life cycle assessment aims to achieve cost  effectiveness  and  to  minimize  the  risk  of environmental   impacts. These requirements have introduced the need of Life  Cycle  Management  Systems among other tools. The vessel’s environmental impact starts from the time it is being built until it is scrapped. As these are long life assets, it greatly benefits from an early assessment from the design phase, through construction, operation maintenance and, scrapping and recycling



To further investigate the innovation in Ships' life-cycle, in all sectors, RINA invites papers from naval architects, class societies, operators, researchers, and builders on all related topics, including but not limited to:
