MONALISA 2.0 takes its point of departure in the results and experiences from the ongoing MONALISA project (2010-EU-21109-S), co-financed by TEN-T under the Motorways of the Sea Programme. MONALISA 2.0 will re-use the results and experiences from the development within the aviation sector and its SESAR (Air Traffic Management) programme, which has been strongly supported by the European Union through the Framework Programmes and TEN-T during the past decade.
The overall objective of MONALISA 2.0 is to strengthen efficiency, safety and environmental performance of maritime transport, at the same time as the administrative burden of the maritime sector will be reduced.
Nine Member States are involved in the studies, which include:
Testing concrete applications and services which would allow short-term commercial deployment for the navigational part of Sea Traffic Management
Taking joint private-public action to elaborate better standards for maritime route exchange through a common interface and data format
Demonstrating concrete services using new technology to enhance maritime safety, making search and rescue and mass evacuations more efficient than today and by addressing port safety
Transferring the results of previous EU investments in air traffic management and other sectors into the maritime sector
MONALISA 2.0 will be beneficial to maritime transport world-wide and the ongoing work within IALA, IMO and EU.
