Digitalization brings promising opportunities to the maritime industry. Even though with lower pace than in other industries, digitalization has arrived in different areas of the maritime industry, and we are now able to include many digitalized components into solutions helping actors to respond to industry and global challenges. We have learned that technology cannot be detached from human agency. That's why collaboration is critical for successful digitalization bringing actors together in the self-organizing ecosystem of transport to extract the digital dividend. Furthermore, collaboration and digitalization need to operate in symbiosis to create both, economic and societal value. Building on the applied science of maritime informatics ( which focuses on digital collaboration, digital data sharing and decision-making, and data analytics, this talk demonstrates the value of digitalization and collaboration acting in symbiosis taking two examples: Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) and maritime decarbonization.
