PLOCAN took part in the second Plenary Assembly of the European EUroMarineRobots –EUMR- (Marine Robotics Research Infrastructure Network) Project, led by the University of Oporto aimed at making a large number of vehicles, tools and infrastructure available to the scientific community and research and development groups through transnational access. The Project partners provide a full pallet of activities distributed throughout Europe for the community with a view to forging new and reinforcing existing connections with different networks related to marine robotics.
This second meeting, held on the 30th of September in Biograd na Moru, Croatia, was used to fine tune and close the guideline for candidates for transnational access that will be published shortly. They also set out a promotion and communication strategy for TNAs, including events such as OCEANS ’19, EMRA ’19 and Oceanology International ’20.
The EUMR Project, reference number 731103, is funded by the European H2020 programme through call for projects H2020-INFRAIA-2017-1. It is scheduled to last 36 months with the participation of fifteen partners from Portugal, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Belgium and Croatia.
