Wide Open Network for Development and Research in Maritime Industries

Objective

WONDERMAR, forming a thematic network of European maritime key-companies, will improve the systematic exchange of information in the European maritime community and multiply information to outside of the RTD community into regional settings. It will encourage interoperability between companies, take-up of new information and communication technologies and thus fast exploitation. WONDERMAR organises 5 public workshops as a forum for three expert groups working on a "Shipbuilding Information Society Technology Review" covering the three areas "design", "manufacturing/assembly" and "logistics/supply chain management". The technology reviews will reflect the State of the Art, Standards and Protocols, Economic potential and ICT Gaps. Further dissemination will be ensured by maintaining a project website "www.wondermar.net" forming an essential and sustainable part of the marine information infrastructure. Results will also serve the updating of the European Maritime Masterplan for R&D.

Objectives:
Analysis of European maritime enterprise interaction have shown high economic potential through improvements in company interoperability as well as through adoption of eCommerce technologies.

WONDERMAR II objectives therefore are:
- improve the systematic exchange of information,
- forging of links between project teams which carry out RTD for a common industry,
- to disseminate and multiply information to outside of the RTD community into regional settings,
- encourage take-up of new IT and thus fast exploitation,
- disseminate project results into European regions,
- bring European experts from Research and Industry to regional maritime areas,
- inform regional industry, in particular SMEs about technology trends and actual developments in EU Research,
- recommend Standards and Protocols for business applications,
- contribute to the R&D Masterplan

Work description:
WONDERMAR II breaks down into 3 work-packages.
The first workpackage is organising 5 events as central element for information dissemination. These events comprise five public workshops as a forum for three expert groups working in workpackage 2 on a "Shipbuilding Information Society Technology (IST) Review". The three expert groups are covering the three relevant areas "design", "manufacturing and assembly" and "logistics and supply chain management" and edit the report in four dedicated sections on State of the Art in Maritime IT Tools, Standards and Protocol, Economic potential of New Tools and Processes and IT Gaps. The report will serve also the updating of the Maritime Masterplan for R&D. The workshops further serve the dissemination of research findings and its application in industry to the local industry including small exhibition areas showing prototypes and pilot implementations resulting from actual IST projects. A total of five workshops will be organised by project partners in European maritime regions. This approach is well established and did prove feasibility in WONDERMAR I. The workshops are open to both project participants as well as local industry to provide a forum for the research projects to meet and learn from each other and from the industry as well as to demonstrate to the regional industry the latest development and application of technology in the maritime field. As workpackage three the existing project website of WONDERMAR I will be extended and improved to assure electronic dissemination of the project findings including workshop reports and the "Shipbuilding IST Review". Thereby it is anticipated to develop the WONDERMAR website to an essential and sustainable part of the marine information infrastructure.

Milestones:
First version of the "Shipbuilding IST Review" including state of the art, relevant standards report, economic potential and IT gaps after 6 months (Milestone 1). Revision of this report after 18 months (Milestone 2). Workshops, technology reports and website provides for the first time a comprehensive information and overview in the field of information society technology for maritime applications. This results into a better knowledge on the situation of IST technology, including an evaluation on the status of implementation up to actual R&D projects and expected results.
