RIGA Workshop
The main themes for the SKEMA Riga workshop were:

1. Optimization of maritime transport information management and the EU e-maritime initiative. 

2. Building a Knowledge Platform to support accelerated implementation of EU policies on maritime and port operations. 

Issues debated are of direct interest to participants in the maritime, logistics and ports industries; specifically the applications of efficient information and knowledge management systems to support : 

1. Maritime transport authorities to harmonise regulatory procedures and to obtain the required information for monitoring compliance with applicable regulations in the simplest possible way, and to exchange information with other authorities for collaboration in safety, security and environmental risk management. 

2. Transport service providers to provide information about their service offerings and exchange information electronically with all relevant actors through planning, executing and completing transport operations.
