Lloyd’s List Global Awards has revealed the finalists. MONALISA 2.0 impressed the judges.

Lloyd’s List Global Awards is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry, and have gone from strength to strength over the last few years. This year is no exception with a remarkable 22% increase in entries across the categories! The competition is fierce, because winning one of the industry’s most sought-after accolade is a tangible demonstration that you have something unique to offer. The MONALISA 2.0 project is proud to have been selected as one of the finalists for the Innovation Award. The nomination is for the Port Collaborative Decision Making concept (Port CDM), which enables port operations and vessels turnaround processes to be performed just-in-time. By interfacing existing port information systems, Port CDM supports involved actors in the port call to share information about their intention constituting situational awareness for increased predictability. Such situational awareness enable long term planning, resource optimisation and handling of late changes. By port call synchronization, arriving vessels can avoid unnecessary anchoring, steam slower, thus saving money and the environment. Ongoing demonstrations in the ports of Gothenburg and Valencia prove its value.

Viktoria Swedish ICT is one of the key actors in designing PortCDM, one of the key koncepts in Sea Traffic Management developed in MonaLisa 2.0.

MONALISA 2.0 is a European-wide project that includes 39 partners from 10 countries. The partnership has a favourable balance between the private, public and academia sectors. It is co-financed by the European Union. The total budget is EUR 24 million. It was formally approved and signed on November 5, 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2015.
