MarineUAS is a doctoral training network conceived to bring forth the next generation of research leaders, scientists and engineers in the field of Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems for Marine and Coastal Monitoring.

This EU funded program brings together five academic and four industrial organisations, as well as three partner organisations, in order to provide doctoral level training for 14 early stage researchers on applied research projects linking academia and industry.

The MarineUAS initiative aims to boost scientific excellence and business innovation, and enhances the researchers’ career prospects through developing their skills in entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation, making them exceptionally well prepared to perform research and development at future employers, or establish their own companies, as well as to transfer research outcomes to new systems with strong commercial impact.
