Background

Based on the experience and results of the project MARVEL OUS (Maritime Virtual Enterprise Linkage - Open User Syndicate) WONDER MAR is concerned with improving the systematic exchange of information and forging links between teams working around a common RTD theme. The RTD themes mainly comprise the use of advanced IT and CT in manufacturing and engineering across the maritime industry.

Objectives

WONDER MAR ensures that existing and future maritime IT projects have at their disposal a forum for the exchange of views, the sharing of experiences and the formulation of common approaches.

At the same time WONDER MAR ensures the representation of such views at existing international forums.

Finally, WONDER MAR helps to disseminate the results of the individual projects and further the wide open nature of the undertaking. New participants are sought actively and innovation is promoted aggressively.
