Real time monitoring, open data and community models are becoming new assets of maritime services and industry. Opportunities of digitalization and opening data are multiple: e-navigation, remote maintenance of ships and offshore structures,  efficient and risk-avoiding operations, environmental monitoring and services for cruise customers. The objectives of this workshop are to review sources of open data and discuss opportunities and challenges of maritime digitilization, as well as show case studies.
