Connecting researchers and skippers to improve ocean research on a global scale at a lower cost
By joining the platform:
✓ Researchers will have access to a database of VESSELS ready to embark scientific equipment and tremendous outreach opportunities
✓ Shipowners will have access to various MISSIONS proposed by scientists to contribute to science
Our goal is to offer an alternative by connecting ocean stakeholders to stimulate ocean research
Daily sailors, round the world racers, fishermen, cargo ships...any boat out there has the capability to take samples or dropping a buoy and be an alternative to conduct light scientific campaigns.
Ultimately, we believe this will also drive innovation by creating new, smaller, lighter, and smarter tools to install on any types of vessels.
WHERE WE'RE COMING FROM...
Based on our experience of collecting data in 2018 for a british university as part of a round the world yacht race, our project is therefore to connect those who need a ship to gather data or deploy equipment to those who want to give meaning to their navigation.
Collecting data at sea is expensive, funding uncertain and places on oceanographic vessels too few and not often in line with the researchers' agenda.
