Digital Education for Maritime Communication

FPP project manager: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Violeta JURKOVIĆ


Project duration: from 01.10.2023 to 30.09.2026

Project financing: Erasmus+ (2023-1-SI01-KA220-HED-000151704)

The main objective of the project is to enhance navigational safety, measured through statistically significant differences (gap analysis) in the maritime communication skills of shore service operators and higher education students before and after the implementation of a digital educational pilot study enacted through instructional videos and chatbots, and potentially to contribute to a reduction of human, environmental, societal, and/or economic losses resulting from maritime accidents. The improvement in maritime communication skills and consequently safety of navigation will be achieved through an open access research-based digital educational tool consisting of instructional videos and chatbots for routine maritime communication, and an open-access inventory of data-based simulation tasks in maritime communication for maritime students. An important outcome concerns recommendations for a systemic revision of the international maritime communication standard.
