RINA Hellas, the Greece-based arm of the international RINA Group, is opening a dedicated research and innovation centre in Piraeus to boost the research and innovation activities to explore further research opportunities in Greece and Cyprus, in close cooperation with the EU and the strong maritime community in the region.

Initially, the RINA Hellas R&D/Innovation Centre is bringing together an international consortium to develop models and tools for the holistic optimization of ships’ life cycles.

Stefanos Chatzinikolaou, a Naval Architect and Marine Engineer with a background of ten years as a research engineer at the National Technical University of Athens, has been appointed to lead the Centre.

Mario Dogliani, Manager of RINA Connecting Europe Facilities (CEF) Projects, says, “AnNa (Advanced National Networks for Administrations) is a TEN-T Multi-Annual Programme co-financed by the European Commission with an objective of the fulfilment of reporting requirements for vessels entering and departing European ports in accordance with EC Directive 2010/65/EU with the National Maritime Single Window and electronic data transmission”.
