STM Project

Running until December 2018


Sea traffic control for optimum energy and commercial efficiency The Sea Traffic Management Validation Project is a Motorway of the Sea project initiated and contributed by EU since June 2015 till the end of 2018. STM aims to overcome many of the challenges of communication and information sharing between stakeholders in the maritime transport industry and create significant added value to, in particular, ship and cargo-owners as well as ports.

The Institute of Maritime Law (IML) is leading the work on the legal feasibility of the STM concept by undertaking a detailed analysis of the practicalities of the STM concept and evaluating their consistency with the legal and regulatory framework applicable to ship.
