CITIS Awards

01/06/2000 - Ocean Voice

The first CITIS awards were presented at the close of the first day of CITIS 2000, by Fotis Karamitsos of the European Commission. These three awards were introduced to recognise innovation in IT and communications in shipping.

The recipients were chosen by an independent panel, and nominations came from users and not the suppliers of equipment and services.

An award for Innovation in IT for Ship Operation was presented to Ulysses Systems Ltd. for its Task Assistant software package aimed at making the ISM code more user friendly onboard ships.
