Executive summary
 WONDERMAR, forming a thematic network of European maritime key-companies, will improve the systematic exchange of information in the European maritime community and multiply information to outside of the RTD community into regional settings. It will encourage interoperability between companies and take-up of new information and communication technologies and thus fast exploitation. WONDERMAR organises 5 public workshops as a forum for three expert groups working on a \"Shipbuilding Information Society Technology Review\" covering the three areas \"design\", \"manufacturing/assembly\" and \"logistics/supply chain management\".

Analyses of European maritime enterprise interaction have shown high economic potential through improvements in company interoperability as well as through adoption of e-Commerce technologies. WONDERMAR II objectives therefore are:
 improve the systematic exchange of information;
 forging of links between project teams which carry out RTD for a common industry;
 to disseminate and multiply information to outside of the RTD community into regional settings;
 encourage take-up of new IT and thus fast exploitation;
 disseminate project results into European regions;
 bring European experts from Research and Industry to regional maritime areas;
 inform regional industry, in particular SMEs about technology trends and actual developments in EU Research;
 recommend Standards and Protocols for business applications;
 Contribute to the R&D Masterplan.
