ACCSEAS wishes to improve maritime access to the North Sea Region (NSR) by developing & implementing e-Navigation within a transnational framework. A North Sea e-Navigation test-bed will be established to demonstrate proof-of-concept solutions.

ACCSEAS enables service providers, researchers & suppliers to develop e-Navigation regional services and to prototype novel marine navigation & communication concepts.

ACCSEAS provides the basis for alleviation of congestion, bottlenecks and accident risk, improving NSR access, with sustained cooperation & actions after the project.
