3 DMI 2000 What is a Virtual Institute? Oxford Concise Dictionary - Virtual: Oxford Concise Dictionary - Virtual: – that is such for practical purposes though not in name or according to strict definition (example: NN is the virtual manager of the business; take this as a virtual promise); – [Computing] not physically existing as such but made [by software] to appear to do so (example: virtual memory); – effective, essential; practical, understood, accepted; Oxford Concise Dictionary - Institute: a society or organization for the promotion of science, education, etc. Oxford Concise Dictionary - Institute: a society or organization for the promotion of science, education, etc.

4 DMI 2000 This may be a Virtual Institute...! Given the definitions of Virtual and Institute, a probable definition of a Virtual Maritime Institute may be a non-physical, but nevertheless fully functioning and capable organism promoting the development and use of maritime science & technology Given the definitions of Virtual and Institute, a probable definition of a Virtual Maritime Institute may be a non-physical, but nevertheless fully functioning and capable organism promoting the development and use of maritime science & technology

5 DMI 2000 Why – The Need for a Virtual Maritime Institute EVIMAR Description of Work: Only through the creation of a technology forum, looking at industry needs over a longer time horizon, can the opportunity to forge long-term solutions and subsequently transfer that know-how to the relevant consumers be manifested. Such possibilities do not presently exist. Furthermore, future technological development must also be harnessed to accommodate social and political requirements EVIMAR Description of Work: Only through the creation of a technology forum, looking at industry needs over a longer time horizon, can the opportunity to forge long-term solutions and subsequently transfer that know-how to the relevant consumers be manifested. Such possibilities do not presently exist. Furthermore, future technological development must also be harnessed to accommodate social and political requirements

6 DMI 2000 What – The Project Objectives Since EVIMAR is to become a Virtual Maritime Institute, the purpose of the project is to prepare the ground for that, including (in business terms): Since EVIMAR is to become a Virtual Maritime Institute, the purpose of the project is to prepare the ground for that, including (in business terms): – Organisation: Define and establish the VI organisation; – Communications: Define and establish the VI infrastructure and knowledge management procedures; – Product: Define and establish ways and means of maintaining and improving the VI competance; – Sales: Define and establish the dissemination of VI services
