Published: 21/12/2016

The CIMNE I+D Project Coordinator Jesús Carbajosa has participated in the 10th edition of the Meeting on Maritime and Port Protection organized by the PBIP (Protection of Ships and Port Infrastructures) Network.

In this edition, CIMNE attended the meeting as a highlighted guest in the forum that had taken place in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia). So, the research center presented the project Sea Traffic Management, based on the MONALISA 2.0. It is one of the most ambitious projects devoted to the maritime and port management whose main goal is to bring the maritime-port industry to the digital age in a more harmonized and coordinated way, called the technological ‘r-Evolution’.

Carbajosa, in his talk at the event, explained that the project consists of a set of synergies based on the interaction between advanced electronic systems and the human element on board ships. In this way, it can complement tasks, facilitate decision making at sea and, in this way, avoid or mitigate the effects of potential accidents.

At the same time, it aims to improve port operations and the logistics chain within the most of the Motorways of the Sea and the multimodal corridors which are part of the Trans European Transport Network Policy.

This validation phase has been carried out by 39 entities, including maritime administrations, research and technological development centers, port authorities, navigation equipment manufacturers, software developers and cloud-based services and big data, universities and shipping companies from 13 European states.
