DMI (RNLNavy), Damen and RH Marine have been exploring a collaboration around data science, with the shared goal of developing innovations to optimize the maintenance of maritime assets at the lowest total cost of ownership.
Until now, the collaboration has been based on trust through prior collaboration and a verbal statement of collaboration between the three parties. From the start of the data science collaboration, the aim has been to formalize the cooperation by means of a strategic agreement. But how does such a formalization process work? How can the strategic agreement pave the path towards successful data science subprojects?
