Comencé hace años a conocer este mundo de la investigación, cuando conseguí mi primer trabajo como programador en el Plymouth Marine Laboratory (UK). Estos días, en Lisboa hemos tenido el kick off meeting para lanzar el proyecto europeo SMARTSEA, que lideramos desde la Universidad de Salamanca y del que soy IP.

Volver a mis orígenes como investigador, y poder liderar el mayor proyecto europeo dedicado a llevar la IoT y la IA al mundo de la marina es para mí un verdadero sueño.

Trabajaremos con algunos de los mejores en este ámbito y además de crear la tecnología formaremos a los profesionales que integrarán esta tecnología en los mayores barcos mercantes y de pasajeros del mundo, también instruiremos a los capitanes de estos buques y contribuiremos con nuestra tecnología a hacerlos más eficientes, reducir sus emisiones y optimizar su desarrollo.

Este consorcio está formado por los grupos de investigación y empresas: BISITE/USAL, FMTS, IHU, CT, NIMRD, ECQA, MUS, TalTech, ENIDH, RINA, CREO, DRC.
