Developing global solutions for health safety on cruise ships
Healthy Ship 4U is a three-year research and innovation project worth over €6 million, supported by the European Union under the Horizon Europe program.
The objective of the project, which involves 23 international partners, is to develop and test global solutions that will facilitate early detection, prevention, mitigation, and management of epidemic outbreaks on large passenger and cruise ships, ensuring safe naval operations and port returns in case of a health crisis.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to reevaluate existing regulations and protocols in terms of health and maritime safety, optimizing ship design parameters as well.
HS4U addresses this challenge from a holistic perspective, proposing a solution that integrates social, legislative, environmental, and technological factors.
Idea-re supported three companies in identifying the partnership, negotiating the project role, and developing operational activities (the exploitation plan for the results).
