It is often said that we know more about the surface of the moon than the ocean floor. The EU-funded STRONGMAR project will address marine knowledge gaps by fostering knowledge transfer and exchanges between leading European marine science research institutes. The project seeks to support innovative technological solutions that will advance deep-sea research at INESC TEC in Porto, Portugal.

To expand knowledge about the deep sea, new innovative technology is essential if researchers are to access remote marine areas. Normally a researcher carries out tasks in his or her area of expertise, but when this is not feasible, an automated platform or robotics may be used.
