Smartship brings together Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) of focused universities, research institutions and strong industrial partners from the maritime sector in order to build a holistic, integrated ICT and IoT-enabled cloud-based framework for sustainable, individualised and completely automated energy management of ships.

Knowledge exchange between the academic and industrial partners is one of the major Smartship’s objectives and will be materialised through corresponding secondments during the whole project’s time plan.

The role of ITML

ITML will lead the design and implementation of the IoT-based advanced data analytics module of Smartship, which will be the core of the multi-level optimisation of the vessels’ operation and management in terms of fuel consumption, energy efficiency, emissions and circular economy principles.
