EUROFLEETS 2 is the enhancement of EUROFLEETS1 with the aim of developing a new pan-European distributed infrastructure with common strategic vision and coordinated access on basis of scientific excellence to key European research vessels and marine equipment. EUROFLEETS2 will undertake specific actions that aim to consolidate fleets’ organization, methodology, and tools and run operational experimental tests (like virtual fleets) leading to fully interoperable and cost-effective European research fleets.

Project abstract:

EUROFLEETS 2 is the enhancement of EUROFLEETS1 with the aim of developing a new pan-European distributed infrastructure with common strategic vision and coordinated access on basis of scientific excellence to key European research vessels and marine equipment. EUROFLEETS2 will undertake specific actions that aim to consolidate fleets’ organization, methodology, and tools and run operational experimental tests (like virtual fleets) leading to fully interoperable and cost-effective European research fleets.

EUROFLEETS2 objectives are:

  • Promotion of integration of Global/Ocean and Regional RVs. Additional European RVs are made accessible under EUROFLEETS2: 8 Ocean/Global (4 new ones in comparison with EUROFLEETS1), 14 Regional RVs (6 new ones) and 6 mobile equipment (5 new ones). Further integration is proposed through  an innovative  multi-platform experiment;
  • Completion of the strategic vision of the European fleets with a shared polar component;
  • Promotion of exchanges of mobile equipment on board European RVs to foster operational interoperability also through Transnational Access;
  • Enhancing the impact of research fleets on innovation by fostering the involvement of industry in specific activities, both as end user (e.g. development and testing of new equipment or deep-sea exploration for new  resources) or as supplier. The EUROFLEETS Club of Industrial Interests already running will be reinforced;
  • Launching of new training actions including a pilot floating university;
  • Technological progress through three innovative R&D projects;
  • Move towards a long term sustainable and financially autonomous group of European RVs with a view to applying for insertion in the ESFRI roadmap.

EUROFLEETS 2 will involve multi-disciplinary expertise split among 31 high quality marine organizations, universities and SMEs from 20 European nations (including fifteen member states, four associated countries to EU and Greenland) representing all European eco-regions.

 

LABUST role:

 

LABUST is partner in R&D WP12 titled "Innovative technologies for hybrid and autonomous underwater systems". Other partners in this R&D WP12 are:

Institut français de recherche pour l‟exploitation de la mer (IFREMER), France

Universitaet Bremen (MARUM), Germany

Universitat de Girona (UdG), Spain

Deutsches Forschungszentrum Für Künstliche Intelligenz GMBH (DFKI), Germany

Prollion (Prollion), France

This WP aims to develop key technologies and innovative functions for underwater systems as new hybrid ROVs. Two main tasks will be:

1. Optical 3D based mapping and control strategies for AUVs, ROVs, and HROVs.

2. New smart LiIon and LiPo technologies for compensated batteries using gel technologies or in oil technologies.
