 Centro Tecnológico del Mar - Fundación CETMAR, ES 

Partners Countries

ES(1), FR(1), IE(2), PT(1), UK(1)

Budget / ERDF

1,920,215€ / 1,248,139.75€

Summary

Arcopol+ aims to further improve maritime safety and Atlantic regions coastal pollution preparedness and response against oil and HNS’s spills through technology transfer, training and innovation.

Previously identified gaps in the HNS knowledge will be addressed and further incorporated into local and regional contingency planning to contribute to build a reasonable and efficient response. Innovative tracking, forecasting and decision support tools will be adapted to the needs of local and regional authorities that will be trained on their application.

AUXNAVALIAPLUS

Lead Partner 

Fundación para o Fomento da Calidade Industrial e Desenvolvemento Tecnolóxico de Galicia, ES 

Partners Countries

 ES(1), FR(1), PT(1), UK(1)

Budget / ERDF

1,977,792 € / 1,285,564.8 €

 Summary

AUXNAVALIAPLUS will improve competitiveness of the naval ancillary industry by implementing activities to enhance innovation capacity. The project will enhance the sector homogeneity in the areas of the region by developing transnational business plan models, working together with an intense transnational approach; will stimulate and support knowledge transfer between research centres bodies and SMEs; will secure the sustainability of the sector and the work started in AUXNAVALIA project, by keeping the Shipbuilding Atlantic Platform alive, promoting new R+D+I projects, helping SMEs to adapt their business plans to the market new demands, and will contribute to overcome the environmental challenges of the region.

Partners Countries

ES(3), FR(1), IE(2), PT(1), UK(1) 

Budget / ERDF

2,809,707.16 € / 1,826,309.52 €

 Summary

The project concerns the demonstration, evaluation and dissemination of new robotic systems, sensors and networking technologies in maritime incidents endangering human life, the environment and economic activities. Air and sea going robotic vehicles provide new capabilities to operate in dull, dirty and dangerous environments.

These tools contribute to environmental assessments with unprecedented resolution and sensing diversity, provide reality checks for events generated in social networks and motivate constructive forms of public participation.

Project

SPRES

Lead Partner 

Fundación Instituto de Hidráulica Ambiental de Cantabria, ES  

Partners Countries

ES(2), FR(1), PT(2), UK(2)

Budget / ERDF

1,789,813 € / 1,163,377 €

Summary

The main aims of this project are the development of a set of high resolution operational oceanographic systems in several estuaries or ports located in the Atlantic Area, and the establishment of local oil spill response plans for these local areas based on risk assessment. This work will apply to estuaries all along the European Atlantic coast region. The methodologies and techniques developed will be applied to sites with physical, biological and socio-economical characteristics that make them highly vulnerable to oil spill.

Budget / ERDF

3,094,816.4 € / 2,011,630.66 €

Summary

This project aims to guarantee the sustainable development of the Atlantic regions enhancing renewable energy production from the ocean. The proposal is to create a Transnational Cooperation Network to push, promote and develop a renewable tidal power production; Establish a transnational pool of experience, collection of data and supervision of the progress; Exploring the potential of innovative energy sources from the sea; and develop pilot projects to test experimental prototypes of energy production in the marine environment.
