The Project

EMAR ‘e-Maritime Strategic Framework and Simulation based Validation'

The EMAR project aims to empower the European maritime sector in offering efficient quality shipping services fully integrated in the overall European transport system over an upgraded information management infrastructure.

The EMAR approach will facilitate extensive participation of the European maritime public, business and research community in a knowledge development process leading to the specification of the e-Maritime Strategic Framework.

The development of the e-Maritime Strategic Framework will include the following key aspects:


A number of market surveys to be conducted by a leading company in this field to identify business drivers and requirement priorities of different stakeholder groups





Stakeholder needs analysis, using knowledge of technology and architectural capabilities from related research projects such as MarNIS, Freightwise, EFFORTS, Flagship, SKEMA etc to identify new processes and functionalities.





Identification of implications for standardization and standardisation strategies for areas that cannot be relied upon being developed in other places.





Measures to address legal and organisational inconsistencies at national and regional levels, human factors and change management issues.





Interfaces with SafeSeaNet, e-Freight and e-Customs, National Single Windows, Galileo and e-Navigation developments.





Cost-benefit analysis for new business models (and corresponding legal changes) relying on e-Maritime services.
