The SKEMA project established a knowledge platform populated by project studies and outputs from workshops and case studies addressing key challenges for the European maritime transport and logistics industry. The project ran 2008-2011 and the consortium included academy, shipping lines, maritime administrations and consultants.

Consolidation studies provided a coherent view of key aspects of Maritime Transport and Logistics and periodic studies analysed contemporary issues in depth. Examples of periodic studies are e-Maritime, Consequences of new MARPOL rules for low-sulphur fuel for the competitiveness of short sea shipping, Weathering the economic crisis and establishing a RoRo standard unit measure. The objective is to facilitate the exchange of information amongst stakeholders in the European maritime transport and logistics industry, raise awareness of relevant research and provide overview and detailed information on current technologies and best practices at European on regional and national levels.
