The working group was established in Kiel on 26th February 2010 as an exchange platform between science and the economy. Those involved include seven firms and five institutions in the cooperation network of the Maritime Cluster Northern Germany. Thanks to the consolidation and networking of expertise in the field of communication and navigation across northern Germany, a building block has been put in place for innovation in the research and exploration of the deep sea and shallow waters.
The objectives of the working group, which had grown into a specialist group by 2014, include creating innovations and standards in intelligent marine technology, which was also envisaged as a leading issue by the National Masterplan Maritime Technologies (NMMT, 2011). A higher added value within the network, a global competitive edge and thus safeguarding jobs of the members would be desirable follow-ups.
