GENERAL INFORMATION / ABOUT LMT
establishment of Laboratory
for Maritime Transport (LMT) was officially approved by
the NTUA Senate in May 2006. Until then, and since 1989, LMT functioned
as a research and educational unit within the School of Naval Architecture and
Marine Engineeering (NAME), known as
‘NTUA Maritime Transport’. LMT holds a
long-standing experience in the design, development and simulation of
maritime and intermodal transport, marine environmental protection,
safety analysis and human elements. Following Greece's rich maritime
tradition, LMT is active in practically all areas of maritime transport
R&D, having completed or being involved in projects in areas
such as technology, management, economics, logistics, telematics, human
aspects, environment, and safety. It has also been involved in projects
and studies with a substantial policy analysis element. Linking
R&D with education, LMT is also fully active in the School's
undergraduate and post-graduate educational programs.
Research activities of LMT have focused on the design, development and evaluation of maritime transport networks, procedures and functions that cover numerous aspects of maritime transport using modern and advanced methodologies, the design and analysis of marine environment systems, and the cost-benefit evaluation and optimization of maritime and intermodal networks. LMT supports a new approach concerning the strategic analysis of marine oil pollution. LMT has carried out a systematic effort to develop skills and know-how in the design and evaluation of recorded problems of marine safety aspects (e.g. accident databases etc.). The development of relative databases, the formulation of innovative analytical approaches (e.g. statistic, data mining, strategic etc.) and the configuration of corresponding electronic networks (for information transferring and elaboration) have always been a direct priority of LMT.
