  1. Maritime skills courses for multidisciplinary and multicultural groups of students – An comprehensive course program that will integrate International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) model course guidelines, practice-oriented, to link theory and practice through using maritime case studies, for cultivating specific soft skills
  2. Maritime Case Study Handbook – A collection of all case studies identified and analyzed during project’ life time. Case studies will be identified in close collaboration with the industry and will constitute an integrated educational material, designed to address current soft skills gaps, while providing to the educators with useful material in respect to the content and the teaching methods
  3. Guidelines for the development of soft skills educational material – Guidelines will be a practical set of recommendations to course designers (teachers) in developing, conducting and evaluating a course focusing on soft skills using cases studies.
  4. Soft skills evaluation tools – This is a set of tools that an educator or a manager can use for evaluating the soft skills competences of students or employees. The aim is the creation of an Assessment Center for systematizing the process of soft skills evaluation, through case studies, pre-defined check lists etc. Assessment Center will link the academia with the business world since, the case studies developed in combination with designed assessment tools will be used in the shipping industry in various ways (e.g. assess the competences of existing employees or for recruitment reasons).
