30 July, 2015 - 09:21
Following the MonaLisa 2 project, EU has decided to contribute with €21 million to the Sea Traffic Management Validation Project, a Motorways of the Sea project. Test beds in Northern Europe and Mediterranean Sea will engage 300 vessels, 10 ports of different sizes and 3 shore centres. These will validate the Sea Traffic Management (STM) concept and pave the way for smooth deployment of new collaborative services previously unknown to sea transport but existing for many years in other transport sectors.
The STM Validation Project encompasses 39 partners (private, public and academic) from 13 countries and with a total budget of 43 million Euro. The project duration is 2015-2018.
Viktoria Swedish ICT have a central role in the project, responsible for the validation of Port CDM, one of the concepts developed in the earlier MonaLisa 2 project.
