The final conference of the STM project took place recently in London.

During the STM Validation Project Final Conference at the International Maritime Organization, IMO, in London November 13-14, the IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim expressed his support of STM: “STM goes hand in hand with IMO goals.” Newly appointed EU Coordinator for Motorways of the Sea, Professor Kurt Bodewig, and other EU officials said that STM is a pillar for the EU strategy and that the 20 million euro invested in the project is a good investment. At the conference representatives for nine industry actors also expressed their intention to take responsibility for the technical governance of the digital Maritime Service Infrastructure, developed within STM.

Our team were represented at the conference by Professor Andrew Serdy (IML Director) and Mr Spiros Papadas who has been the Senior Research Assistant working on the project.
