The first partner meeting for this newly approved project took place on 17-19 November 2016 in Istanbul. The next meeting is planned for 30-31 March 2017 in Croatia. The details of these meetings will be published in March 2017.
The new ACTS project, ACTS Plus is based on the Pareto analysis carried out as a part of the recently concluded ACTs project. The Pareto analysis showed that some of the COLREGS rules are more complicated than others and that there are situations where a number of rules apply. The paper argues the importance of continuing the ACTs project both according to the plans for its post-funding period and also by preparing a new proposal for EU funding (ACTS Plus). It is worth pointing out that as a result of the new paper a proposal was prepared by some the partners and submitted to the UK national agency.
This new ACTS project is led by Southampton Solent University (SSU) and coordinated by C4FF. The project started officially on 1st October 2016.
