The eighth edition of the Martech Workshop Meeting on Marine Technology has taken a relevant step on the international scene. It was held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and, during it, PLOCAN provided results obtained within the framework of the AtlantOS Project in various Glider missions and in collaborative experiments.
During the 10th and 11th of December the last advances and technological developments in marine robotics, operational oceanography, remote sensing, underwater image and data communication, seabed mapping, marine renewable energies, aquaculture, structures and materials, etc., were presented at the Martech Workshop, grouping a large amount of international investigation groups and companies.
The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) has contributed, once again, with two oral reports related to the results obtained within the framework of the AtlantOS Project in various Glider missions and in collaborative experiments. AtlantOS is an ambitious investigation project led by the German institute GEOMAR, in which more than 60 institutions from 18 countries on both sides of the Atlantic work together in order to reinforce the existing cooperation networks and join forces to achieve shared goals.
