State Subsidy Funded Research

Research funded by the subsidies granted to the faculties of Gdynia Maritime University by the state includes, as per the University’s Articles of Association, scientific research and development work initiated and conducted by the University in the form of continual research and development work. The tasks and associated expenses covered by the subsidies are determined independently by the University’s scientific units, which consider both available subsidies and other sources of income as means to finance their scientific activity.

State subsidy funding for research activity also covers tasks necessary in the development of scientific fields of study and areas of research, the training and development of science personnel, and other activities such as the popularisation of science and initiatives connected with the commercialisation of scientific research, and development work.

From the funds allocated to the faculties of Gdynia Maritime University for research, University and collaborative research projects are carried out within the following scientific disciplines:

  • civil engineering and transport,
  • mechanical engineering (with elements of earth and environmental sciences),
  • automation, electronics and electrical engineering
  • management and quality sciences, including food and nutrition, health sciences, and economics and finance.

Within the Faculty of Navigation, research is conducted on the development of e-navigation, the improvement of shipping and ship safety, operational and ecological safety in water transport, hydrographic survey of reservoirs, and transport network security.

Within the Faculty of Marine Engineering, research is conducted in areas such as the effect of construction materials on the operational effectiveness of vessels, diagnosis of the construction and parts of marine equipment, the operation of ship machinery and equipment - including energy and the environment, and the modelling of physical fields within marine environments.

Examples of research work carried out within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, include topics such as modern automatic ship steering systems, marine application of electric power quality analysis, modelling and analysis of electronic systems, measurement of thermal phenomena in energy conversion systems, and optimal signal processing methods in telecommunications systems.

Within the Faculty of Management and Quality Science, research topics include materials, commodities and processes in the context of environmental protection, transport and logistics systems management models, business organisation management, the sustainable development of coastal areas, data analysis tools and methods, and optimisation methods.
