Fincantieri and the University of Genoa start four PhD projects

Under the Convention on the Promotion and funding of educational and experimental activities in the field signed last November by Paolo Comanducci, rector University of Genoa, and Giuseppe Bono, administrator Fincantieri Group delegate, the parties have signed up to conventions to start four doctoral projects of the duration three years each.

In particular, it is related to: study of cybersecurity risks and techniques ship board and production sites; strategies and methods for Hull weight reduction in line with the latest developments in ship-building regulations; study of tools and methods of designing on-board electrical systems Ship.

"The research topics identified in accordance with Fincantieri - explained Rector Comanducci - are, as always More often, a set of traditional research in naval engineering and activities come from other areas, such as engineering and cyber-security. This confirms the importance common-skilled strategy of common skills multidisciplinary work that is taking place at the University of Genoa through the establishment of the Strategic Centres of Athens, with the recent consolidation of the Centre of the Sea, which was born last year year, and the next launch of further initiatives, including security.'

"Themes such as the reduction of the weight of the have significant impacts on the hull, noted Giuseppe Bono improving ship performance and efficiency, to improve don't talk about the imperative represented today by the need have a clear cybersecurity solution to offer to our customers as well as to be used for our production sites and engineering. We are therefore very satisfied - he stressed Fincantieri's CEO - to be able to start these PhDs, which make up the highest level of training high in the order of university studies, providing young people already with solid preparation the opportunity to acquire distinctive professionalism in specific fields of scientific, technological, social and economic importance. Just at an extremely difficult time like the one we're going through we feel we need to continue to invest in the future focusing on research, innovation and skills."
