Our goals

  • Promoting joint work between scientists and engineers to face the new challenges posed by the exploration, sustainable exploitation and conservation of the marine environment.
  • Developing new technologies related to the ocean and making them accesible to both researchers and society.
  • Executing scientific research programs on ocean systems and submerged heritage, mainly those involving technological or methodological advances.
  • Contributing to the Blue Growth development through the application of new technologies that help the sustainable exploitation of marine resources.
  • Developing and promoting programs which combine companies, technical schools, training centers, universities, research centers and associations in Cartagena linked to the marine environment.
  • Incrementing the amount of oceanographic studies on the region of Murcia. Even though it is an area of great interest and an important resource exploitation area (fishing, archeaological...), there is a lack of specific works on this field.
