Stevens and TNO to collaborate on maritime security
Date:2/17/2010

HOBOKEN, N.J. and THE HAGUE, The Netherlands -- Recognizing the strategic opportunity to form a long term research relationship and become recognized research leaders in the underwater sciences and engineering and port and maritime security, Stevens Institute of Technology recently entered into an agreement with TNO Defence Security and Safety.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the university and the Netherlands based research organization has the potential to create joint initiatives in the fields of underwater sciences and engineering port and maritime security, including sensing techniques and sensor performance analysis. The MOU works to enable effective collaboration on research and education and pursuit of new funding opportunities.

"Stevens Institute of Technology and TNO each have extraordinary technical expertise and experience in dealing with the numerous challenges facing our maritime community. The partnership also brings together organizations that work closely with two of the most important ports in the world - Stevens with the Port of New York and New Jersey, and TNO with the Port of Rotterdam," said Michael Bruno, Dean of the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and

Science at Stevens. "My colleagues and I look forward to the challenging work that lies ahead." TNO is an independent research organization whose expertise and research make an important contribution to the competitiveness of companies and organizations, to the economy and to the quality of society as a whole. TNO's unique position is attributable to its versatility and capacity to integrate this knowledge.

The objective of the MOU is to establish a mutually beneficial, cooperative relationship between TNO and Stevens to allow them to individually and mutually improve the following activities:

  • Develop an internationally recognized research capability in underwater sciences and engineering and port and maritime security.
  • Develop applied research opportunities and application areas for underwater sciences and engineering and port and maritime security.
  • Pursue joint internal research and development proposals and collaborate throughout the proposal lifecycle
  • Explore internships and participation of faculty, research staff, and students in relevant sponsored activities at each organization.
