Ongoing Projects

marine-sensorsCost-effective sensors, interoperable with international existing ocean observing systems to meet EU policy requirements.

Start Date:  1 November 2013 ; End Date: 28 February 2017

Summary of Project:

This project aims to develop integrated and effective data acquisition systems by developing innovative sensors that are interoperable with international existing ocean observing systems to meet EU marine policies such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the Common Fisheries Policy. 

TelLab’s contribution:

TelLab’s main involvement is in the following Work Packages (WPs):

  • WP 2 Integrated basis for cost-effective sensors development
  • WP 5 Sensors for in-situ monitoring of Eutrophication
  • WP 7 Sensors for in-situ monitoring of heavy metals

Our tasks include extensive laboratory testing and comparing of reference samples with the sensor results. We are also involved in the dissemination and exploitation of the project through attendance at Trade Shows where details of all of our European projects are promoted.
