Survey for international seafarers during the COVID-19 pandemic

03 Jul 2020

If you are currently working on an international vessel, a joint university research team want to hear about your experiences at sea during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aim of the survey is to understand how the pandemic is affecting international seafarers and to identify factors that may help crews in the future.

The survey will take you about 30 minutes to complete. There are no right or wrong answers. You will be asked about your experiences on board, as well as background questions about you and your ship.

The research project is being carried out by an international team of researchers from the University of Queensland (Australia), Royal Holloway University of London (UK), the World Maritime University (Sweden), and Uppsala University (Sweden).

Your contribution is confidential and will be used to make recommendations to improve life at sea.

Please feel free to share the link to the survey with other international seafarers who are currently on board and who might be interested in participating.
