The blue economy is a key economic sector and source of jobs for the EU. With research becoming increasingly significant for the blue economy and sea ecology, underwater and surface drones have risen in importance: they can carry scientific payloads for most environmental observations, even under 6 000 metres. They are also agile, durable and cost-efficient. However, they require infrastructure capable of meeting a sizeable number of different criteria, depending on the operations. The EU-funded GROOM II project will build on previous efforts to combat these problems and improve the infrastructure. It will define the overall organisation of the infrastructure to focus on ocean research and innovation.
