€21 million in EU funding for Sea Traffic Management

The EU is to contribute €21 million to the Sea Traffic Management Validation Project, part of the overarching Motorways of the Sea initiative, as the concept is tested in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Sea with input from 300 vessels, 10 ports of different sizes and three shore centres.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}It is hoped that validation of the Sea Traffic Management (STM) concept could pave the way for the deployment of new collaborative services to assist in streamlining the movement of vessels, similar to those used in other transport sectors.

The STM Concept was defined within the earlier MONALISA 2.0 project, itself part of the Motorways of the Sea effort, which has seen a technical protocol for route exchange developed. This protocol is currently in a phase of “international standardisation” according to the project managers.

The STM Validation Project encompasses 39 partners (private, public and academic) from 13 countries, with a total budget of €43 million. The project is expected to run from 2015 to 2018.{/mprestriction}
