  • WP2 1st Workshop for Stakeholders requirements


The first PALAEMON workshop took place on the 25th of November 2019 and was attended by 44 persons (partners from the consortium and external stakeholders). The workshop was organized by NTUA and hosted by ANEK Ferry “KRITI II” that was moored at the Port of Piraeus (Greece). The purpose of the workshop was to distinguish potential problems and areas for improvement of the current systems and procedures, identify the first set of stakeholders’ needs and expectations and map realistic use cases for the purposes of WP2.


  • WP2 2nd Workshop for Stakeholders requirements


The second PALAEMON workshop took place on April 24, 2021 and was hosted online due to the COVID-19 related measures. This workshop was attended by 25 persons (consortium partners and external stakeholders) and its purpose was to receive feedback on the elicited stakeholders’ requirements that were identified through the 1st workshop, to revise stakeholders’ needs and expectations and validate the final set of PALAEMON system requirements. Furthermore, a session of the workshop was dedicated to the presentation of the “ISOLA” project’s concept and the potential convergence between PALAELPN and ISOLA.


  • Workshop: Evacuation and people with disabilities


As part of the requirements engineering and understanding of situations on a ship for senior citizens, Johanniter started a living lab approach in the Vienna Prater on the 6th of May 2021. Corona allowed the use of this recreation and fun area for Johanniter to run a small pilot action to collect data on the impact of moving ground to people with disabilities. Several media supported this action with reports and interviews. A reach of approximately 1.200.000 people was achieved with all media reports through the biggest newspapers in Austria.

  • Workshop within EBDVF 2021


The Big Data Value Association (BDVA) is an industry-driven organisation with a mission to develop an innovation ecosystem that enables the data-driven digital transformation of the economy and society in Europe. BDVA organizes a European Big Data Value Forum each year. The 2021 European Big Data Value Forum edition, entitled “Digital Transformation powered by Data and AI” took place from November 29 to December 3, as a “hybrid” event (in person and online). EBDVF 2021 was an associated event of the Slovenian EU Presidency. ATOS, a key partner of PALAEMON had the opportunity to present the PALAEMON project in their Virtual Booth (see EBDVF Atos) — presentation provided by David Gómez and Carmen Perea (30.11 2021)

  • Workshop: A radical rethinking of traditional Waterborne Solutions to increase Accessibility and Remove Barriers


The PALAEMON project has been part of a special session organized with the TRA2022(Transport Research Arena) Conference. The session included three EU funded H2020 projects all focused on demonstrating the state-of-the-art research and development results into waterborne transport. Sharing synergies between electrification to reduce GHG and the vision to support the safety of passengers through a total solution for the evacuation of large passenger ships. The session created a collaborative communication space for all three projects to share their respective aims and objectives and latest results.

  • Workshop: Evaluate the effectiveness of emergency alert and notification capabilities of the Smart Evacuation Management (SEM) platform Pre-Pilot Workshop I 


The PALAEMON project conducted a pre-pilot action at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the PALAEMON emergency messages and collect data in a controlled environment. On November 25th, representatives from NTUA, Johanniter, and UAegean, along with 20 students from the school of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at NTUA, participated in the action.

  • Workshop: PALAEMON Pre-Pilot Workshop II


The pre-pilot conducted on-board the Ro-Ro Ferry “ELYROS” of ANEK on December 15, 2022 (first day) and on December 19, 2022 (second day). The purpose of this 2nd day pre-pilot action was to conduct several pilot exercises with the participation of students playing the role of passengers and to measure some of the PALAEMON defined KPIs.


  • Workshop: PALAEMON after-Pilot Workshop


The final pilot action of the project took place on 30th and 31st of January 2023, on-board the Ro-Ro Ferry “ELYROS” of ANEK. The participants of the pilot action were: 10 students from School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering of NTUA as passengers. Crew members (i.e., Chief Officer and Master) from ANEK’s Ro-Ro Ferry “ELYROS ANEK along with the Pilot Exercise Evaluation Team (PEET) will also be present, acting as crew members. Additionally, there were members of the PALAEMON consortium Airbus, UAegean, NTUA, Ericsson, ANEK, media representatives and external invitees (relevant stakeholders) as observers. After the Pilot, the project team and the invited experts discussed and reviewed the results of the Pilot and summarised the maon pilot achievements and contributions to the field. These conclusion are included in the Deliverables of WP8

  • Smart Evacuation Management via PALAEMON, Posidonia, Athens, Greece


Posidonia 2022 is a well-known exhibition that is held every two years in Athens, Greece. In 2022 the exhibition was held during the week 6th – 10th of June. PALAEMON had a strong presence via a leaflet and a poster in the booth of UAEG.
