The twelve projects that are part of the “Ocean of Tomorrow” call from the European Commission have just published a newsletter detailing partial results for the ongoing projects. The aim of the call is to combine the efforts of various interested parties from a broad range of sectors in order to develop innovative marine technology for a wide variety of applications. The call contained four themes covering three key areas: marine detection technologies (including biosensors) for monitoring the marine environment; innovative anti-fouling materials for maritime applications; and new transport and deployment systems for the marine wind energy sector.
