EfficienSea 2 Workshop – How to run Maritime Connectivity Platform

21 - 22 November 2017
IALA Offices, 10 rue des Gaudines, 78100 St Germaine n Laye, France.

The MCP (Maritime Connectivity Platform), formerly known as the Maritime Cloud, is a communication framework that enables efficient, secure, reliable and seamless electronic information exchange among all authorized maritime stakeholders across available communication systems. This framework is currently under development in a collaboration between different projects – EfficienSea2 (EU), STM validation project (EU) and the SMART Navigation project (Korea). As a partner in the EfficienSea 2 project, IALA is participating in the work on maturing the MCP, in order to assess its potential as the generic communication framework for e-navigation at large. It is assumed that the MCP is desirable and on this basis the workshop will discuss the best options with regard to governance and business model.

The workshop will address the implementation of the MCP with a focus on reviewing governance and business model options, identifying preferred governance and business models and a related exploitation plan for global information exchange. It is anticipated that the workshop will provide participants with a good understanding of the MCP concept and develop a forward plan for its globalisation.
