LSTS was present at the Missão Empresarial do BlueTech Cluster de San Diego, Estados Unidos da América, “The Maritime Alliance”, a B2B meeting held by Fórum Oceano in Lisbon.
This meeting served to expand contacts already made during Oceanology International 2018 event with Maritime Alliance President Michael B. Jones and its CEO, Greg Murphy, regarding TNA (trans-national access) calls for the EUMarine Robots project. These TNAs were also presented to other companies that are part of the Maritime Alliance, such as Swift Engineering, Innerspace Corporation and Halo Maritime Defense Systems.
The contact with Portuguese institutions served to promote the TNA of non-Portuguese infrastructures of the project consortium.
An invitation was also made to present the EUMarine Robots project in August 2018 at the University of Southern Mississippi (MIST Cluster), by its Director Robbie Ingram.
