Final meeting of the INFOCEAN Desk project

16th December 2010 saw the final meeting in Toulouse of the INFOCEAN project, involving two firms, CLS (Aerospace Valley Cluster) and ACRI (APCA Marine Cluster), and research laboratories Météo France and Mercator Ocean. INFOCEAN is designed to use satellite data and operational oceanographic models for the benefit of the offshore oil and gas industry, fisheries or aquaculture. The project has already created jobs at the two partner firms. The PACA and Mer Bretagne Marine Clusters and the Aerospace Valley cluster are preparing for the next stage with an INFOCEAN+ project, and a major project, involving a number of partners, based on satellite data and operational oceanographic models.INFO+ herrouin@polemerpaca.com
