On the 25th and 27th of May the LISA Flagship held its first external workshops with stakeholders. In total 60 different stakeholders joined in and assisted us in paving the way forward.
What caught the eye of almost 300 people from 43 countries on all continents but Antarctica? The STM Conference 2021! It showed concrete results from several projects, revealed how far the work on standardization has come and discussed the importance of information sharing as an enabler for GHG-reducing just-in-time arrivals. The ecosystem provider, the non-profit consortium Navelink, also shared the offer to join one year for free, as long as you “bring something to the table”. Currently there are about 100 operational services in the ecosystem.
Very few projects deliver results that are directly implemented in the real world. The Interreg Central Baltic project EfficientFlow did just that. At the final conference the results were presented along with how the port solution is being deployed in many Finnish ports and the ship solution is put to use in Sweden.
