The process, which will be repeated 3 times during the proposed NoE duration, is intended to be continue d as a permanent "think tank". During the Innovation Loops the creative potential and expertise of the leading European Maritime Universities will used, both for idea generation as well as for concept validation. The definition of all concept outlines and R&D gaps will be done on the basis of market and so-ciety scenarios, which will be evaluated and selected as part of the process.The results of the visionary process will be presented to the R&D community and the maritime industry by annual works hops and will be used as input for the definition of R&D strategy of the maritime industry, linked to its actual and future European Advisory Council and Technology platform structures.
