New marine robotics infrastructure network launched
Transnational access to European marine robotics infrastructures will be provided to researchers.

The Marine Robotics Research Infrastructure Network - EUMarineRobots is an EU Horizon2020 research and innovation action project that will provide transnational access to the prestigious European marine robotics infrastructures to researchers from both academia and industry, establishing a well-developed world-class network. The available research and development infrastructures include a full range of aerial, surface and subsurface marine robotic assets.

EUMarineRobots started on the 1st of March 2018 and had its first public appearance on Oceanology International 2018, the world’s leading ocean technology exhibition. EUMarineRobots  announced the project’s planned activities with special focus on public calls for researchers and industry to access EUMarineRobots infrastructure, training, education, and data that will be opened during the projects lifecycle.

The project consortium has representatives from 10 countries that, collectively, deploy a comprehensive portfolio of marine robotic assets together with associated support and expertise:

Universidade do Porto, Portugal
Universitaet Bremen, Germany
Associação do Instituto Superior Técnico para a Investigação e Desenvolvimento, Portugal
Universita Degli Studi di Genova, Italy
