EUropean test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspective
Integrated Maritime Surveillance is the effective understanding of all activities carried out at sea that could impact the security, safety, economy, or environment of the European Union and its Member States, according to the Integrated Maritime Policy and the European Maritime Security Strategy of the European Union. Enhancing information exchange between maritime surveillance authorities is one of the key strategic objectives of the European Union under the Integrated Maritime Policy, which seeks to provide a more coherent approach to maritime issues, with increased coordination between different policy areas (transport, environmental protection, fisheries control, border control, general law enforcement, customs and defence). On this concept is based EUCISE2020, a Security Research project of the European Seventh Framework Program, which aims to achieve the pre-operational Information Sharing between the maritime authorities of the European States. EUCISE2020 is an important milestone in the roadmap for implementation of the European CISE – Common Information Sharing Environment, and it represents the European test-bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspective.
TOWARD A BETTER EUROPEAN MARITIME GOVERNANCE: THE EUCISE2020 PROJECT
EUCISE2020 is a Security Research project of the European Seventh Framework Program; it aims at achieving the pre-operational Information Sharing between the maritime authorities of the European States. The aim is to create a political, organizational and legal environment to enable information sharing across the seven relevant sectors/user communities (transport, environmental protection, fisheries control, border control, general law enforcement, customs and defense) based on existing and also on future surveillance systems/networks with a view to achieve a fully operational CISE - Common Information Sharing Environment. EUCISE 2020 is an important milestone in the roadmap for implementation of the European CISE - Common Information Sharing Environment.
Pursuing the cooperation started with pilot projects, the preparatory work of the TAG (Technical Advisory Group) and the results of the Cooperation project launched by DG MARE, the overall objective of EUCISE2020 is to progress towards establishing a forward operating vision of CISE more stable and innovative, functionally and geographically larger, and more shared by different communities of European public and private stakeholders. CISE will support further cross-border and cross-sector operational cooperation between public authorities -including EU Agencies- in the execution of the defined maritime functionalities, with a focus on information sharing across sea-basins.
The EUCISE2020 Consortium makes available at this link the EUCISE2020 Data Model v1.0 document, in order to support the participation to the H2020 Call “SEC-19-BES-2016” and “SEC-20-BES-2016”.
The EUCISE2020 Consortium organized an Information Day following the publication of the Contract Notice for the European EUCISE2020 tender. The event was held in Rome on the13th of April at the Hotel Quirinale.
The Information Day was an opportunity for participants to acquire information on the procurement process and to establish connections among them.
For this purpose, interested parties can download at the present link the pdf file with the list of participants who gave their consent to the publication of their information.
All materials concerning the EUCISE2020 Standardization Workshop are available in the Publications section.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement nr. 608385
