New challenges for unmanned maritime systems

The 3rd Workshop on European Unmanned Maritime Systems is co-organised by EDA, the Portuguese Ministry of National Defence, and INESC Technology & Science. The workshop will take place within the framework of the 4th Sea Forum in Porto, Portugal.

The major goal of the workshop is to promote the exchange of information on current and recently completed research and technology work in the area of the Unmanned Maritime Systems program, under EDA, which aims new developments on unmanned maritime systems, and the application of these systems in several domains, both in military and civilian areas. Being complementarity and cooperation a main focus in Europe, it is also a goal to promote this exchange with recent and current 7th Framework Program as well as national projects under this same area.

The workshop is targeted to both researchers and end-users, and constitutes a privileged forum for discussing new ideas, identifying new trends and paradigms, new business opportunities, as well as the establishment of partnerships,  namely in the scope of the European Horizon 2020 Programme. The workshop is open to the representatives of industry, research institutes, academia, and government organizations from EDA Member States and Norway.
