We would like to present the results of the SUSHIDROP project, which has developed and tested an innovative underwater drone equipped with specific sensors to improve our knowledge of environmental status of the Adriatic Sea, answering to the need to have accurate and non-invasive methods for mapping the marine ecosystem.
We have already implemented two filed missions in Italy and in Croatia and collected data for the estimation of biophysical parameters, videos and high-resolution images of the underwater environment of the Adriatic Sea. All data collected are going to be published in open data format and available in GIS platform with the final aim to use them to design and implement more effective marine management plans.
The first session of the conference is focused on innovative technologies and approaches to support fisheries sustainable development and to improve management and protection measures. We will also share the results of ITACA https://www.italy-croatia.eu/web/itaca and FAIRSEA projects https://www.italy-croatia.eu/web/fairsea/site.
In the second session we will focus on the opportunities offered by the new programming period to capitalize the work already done and continue to work and to contribute to the Blue Economy/Growth development sharing information about the new 2021-2027 Cooperation programmes, the macro-areas related to the Blue Growth and the possibilities offered by the Cluster 6 of the New HORIZON Program.
The conference is organized as part of the Tipicità in Blu initiative https://www.tipicitainblu.it
An info-point of the project will be present during the event.
