Process Innovations through Digital Services for the Port of the Future
The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) gave a grant for the project „Process Innovations through Digital Services for the Port of the Future“ (ProDIS) to ISL in the end of 2015. The project is part of the research framework „Innovations for Manufacturing, Services and La-bour of Tomorrow“. ProDIS will deliver a significant contribution to the increase of innovation power of small and medium-sized companies in the shipping industry. Three demonstrators shall highlight and validate possibilities for new services in seaports fully exploiting the opportunities of process innovations enabled by digitalisation. One envisages that ProDIS results on development and implementation of digital services will be transferable to other sectors.
