Ulf Siwe updates readers on the MONALISA project.
Taking maritime transport into the digital era is the MONALISA 2.0 motto and almost 300 people from more than 20 countries joined the final conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, earlier this month to see the progress made.
The STM Validation Project kicked-off as well. It is the next e-navigation step, and a logical follow-up. In MONALISA 2.0, the Sea Traffic Management (STM) concept was defined. Now the concept will be tested, implemented and validated by 300 ships and 13 ports in two test beds, the Mediterranean and the Nordics, supported by five service centres on shore. Perhaps the most important task is to demonstrate the business value of the services to all stakeholders.
