The CIMAC Strategy Group Digitalization has a new chair: Dominik Schneiter, WinGD, Winterthur, Switzerland, is taking over from Eero Lehtovaara, ABB, Helsinki, Finland, who has chaired the group since its founding in 2020. Eero is the designated Vice President Digitalization in the CIMAC Board.

Currently, the focus of the group is on the topic "Ship as a Data Eco System". A white paper on this will be completed shortly and presented in Busan during the CIMAC Congress. In addition, even greater efforts are being made to transport the important topics in the direction of Asia and to motivate in particular members from Singapore, Korea, Japan and China  to participate actively in the group.
