SDU Maritime Research Platform

The SDU Maritime Research Platform was established in 2022 based on a donation from A/S Dampskibsselskabet Orient’s Fond. The platform consists of maritime research projects in four faculties across the University of Southern Denmark, mostly PhD and Postdoc projects, and the platform has a special focus on the offshore cluster in the Southern Region of Denmark.
All projects in the SDU Maritime Research Platform are related to work packages that are rooted in strong research groups across the university. At the same time, researchers in the platform meet regularly to discuss their research in a highly interdisciplinary setting. The platform also has a strong focus on relations to the industry.
