Research Projects


Fórum Oceano – Association of Maritime Economy is a private non-profit corporate body, which aims to promote the Maritime Economy. Association has more than 100 members connected to many sectors of the Sea economy.

DREAMS became a HUMANIST member, which represented a networking opportunity to share ideas and identifying new research needs.

HUMANIST (Human-Centred Design for Information Society Technologies) is a research network resulting from the EC funded HUMANIST Network of Excellence from FP6.

HUMANIST acts as a Virtual Centre for Excellence promoting research and the continuous creation of new generations of researches.

Thus, HUMANIST is organised in thematic groups nurturing and fostering new research needs and related rationales for new research projects.

This membership had important effects onto new dynamics within DREAMS resulting from the discussion within the thematic groups and the participation in HUMANIST events: the HUMANIST Conference organised each two years, the Summer Schools organised by any member and the two annual meetings.
