The First International Maritime Human Factors Symposium

Last year’s International Maritime Human Factors Symposium, organised by the University of Strathclyde and supported by the EU-Horizon SAFEMODE project, marked an important step toward a better understanding of human factors and their role in enhancing maritime safety. The event convened a global assembly of scholars, industry professionals, and policymakers, focusing on the intricate role of Human Factors in maritime system design and operations. The symposium was structured around seven key themes, ranging from the integration of proactive safety cultures to the challenges and opportunities presented by automation. Notably, the event also included the inauguration of the Maritime Human Factors Centre (MHFC) at the University of Strathclyde, a dedicated hub for research and innovation. The symposium not only served as a platform for knowledge exchange but also concluded with valuable recommendations for future research and policy interventions
