“STM - Sea Traffic Management” aims to overcome many of the challenges relating to communication and dissemination of information among stakeholders in the maritime transport sector. By exchanging data between ships, service providers and maritime companies, STM is creating a new model for the exchange of maritime information, which offers the digital infrastructure of the future, for the logistics industry. In the STM Validation project, the theoretical definition work completed as part of “Monalisa 2.0” will be put into practice, with the provision of large-scale test
benches for the management of maritime traffic in the North Sea and in the Mediterranean Sea. In these test benches, voyage management, flow management and the port-based collaborative decision-making process will be tested and validated in practice. A data exchange infrastructure will also be available. The project includes more than 50 partners, 300 ships, 13 ports, five land-based service centres and 13 simulator centres connected to the EMSN – European Maritime Simulator Network.
