This project is the result of a common strategy developed by two regions with the ambition of reaching a deeper understanding of the ocean.

Within the project, different partners with operational, technological and scientific background have come together.

In all cases, existing projects in operational oceanography in which they are involved provide experience of the marine environment and a point of departure for this trans-frontier collaboration. The results of these projects for the region of the northwest Iberian Peninsula (some of which are detailed below) will be available for the developments outlined here.
