Shipping of the Future
The Swedish Maritime Administration is actively working to develop the shipping of the future. The work takes place in both a national and international context with programs and projects in research and innovation.
Research and Innovation at Swedish Maritime Administration
By initiating and running a number of international projects, the Swedish Maritime Administration contributes to development and progress in the shipping industry and in its own organization. We contribute to increase the competitiveness of shipping by examining the possibilities thereof in the intermodal logistics chain. By conducting innovation and service development, the Swedish Maritime Administration takes concrete responsibility for the future of shipping, and ensures the efficiency of its own organization. An important component of this work is to contribute actively to the work with international standards and the development of a maritime digital infrastructure.
The Swedish Maritime Administration focuses its research and innovation work on the following general areas:
• Digitization, automation and information sharing
• Robust and precise positioning
• Promote the shift of goods from land to sea
• Reduced environmental and climate impact
On a more detailed level the focus is on:
- The digital port call
- Digital and connected fairways
- Sea Traffic Management

- SAR 2.0
- Equal treatment
- The fleet of the future
- The VTS of the future
Research and Innovation collaboration
The Swedish Maritime Administration collaborates with the business community, academia, the shipping industry and other authorities both in Sweden and internationally. International regulations and the global character of shipping make collaboration outside Sweden and Europe's borders crucial for the future of shipping. Close cooperation within the EU also enables external funding from the EU's various funding programs for research and innovation.
