Objectives

DESSEV Erasmus+ project brought together seven organisations from six European countries to design and develop the decision support system for maritime decision makers in order to give
some indications in the case of epidemic outbreak.

The project is devoted to issues related to the outbreak of an epidemic on the sea-going vessel. In practice, the vessel becomes a moving isolator with a great potential to “release” the disease over a larger area.

The COVID-19 outbreak has demonstrated that in many places there are no mechanisms for dealing with disease emergencies. Although many agreements and contracts anticipated “force majeure” risks, no one was aware of the fact that this could be global.

COVID- 19 has shown that very often existing procedures are not adapted to the reality around us. Very often, new ones need to be developed quickly. Sometimes there is even no legal basis to implement and apply such procedures.

The aim of the project is to design and develop the decision support system for maritime decision makers in order to give some indications in the case of epidemic outbreak.

Project goals

Online data repository with useful resources such as articles, recommendations, procedures on health in epidemic situations for marine staff, to which seafarers can recourse.

An application which main component is decision support system, where each captain/officer is able to identify the epidemic situations and is able to take appropriate action.

Knowledge base in the form of
“IF … THEN …” rules base
which can be easily implemented into decision support system.
