With a budget of 24 million Euros for the 2012-2015 period, MONALISA 2.0 will build on the Motorways of the Sea concept and look at sea traffic management tools and operations, among other areas.
The project will build on the experience gained during the MONALISA 1 project, co-financed by TEN-T (Trans-European Transport Network), as well as the results from the SESAR (Air Traffic Management) programme.
Actions taken will include: testing of concrete applications and services which would allow rapid commercial deployment; integration of route planning; elaboration of better standards for route information exchange; and demonstration of hands-on services using new technology to enhance maritime safety.
The MONALISA 2.0 consortium consists of public, private and academic partners. Its geographical scope covers the Baltic Sea, North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
