As InnovaMare partner, UNITS will attend the Breaking the Surface (BTS) international interdisciplinary field workshop of maritime robotics and applications, where DEAMS will contribute with his strong experience in innovation systems research, also related to maritime and naval sectors. The 13th BTS edition will take place from the 26th of September to the 3rd of October in Biograd na Moru, Croatia. 

The BTS is a workshop that encourages interaction and the exchange of knowledge and experience about the field of maritime robotics and its applications. This event is organized by an InnovaMare partner: the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) a faculty of the University of Zagreb.

The program of the event includes several types of activities, as lectures where the latest scientific research and results are presented, some interesting field demonstrations which showcase the latest technology achievements made by research groups and companies, tutorials that offer hands-on experience working with complex and modern underwater systems, and also company presentations with insight from company professionals about their company and company products. 


The University of Trieste (UNITS) with the Department of Economics, Management, Mathematics, and Statistics “Bruno de Finetti” (DEAMS) is a partner of the InnovaMare Project strategic project - Blue technology - Developing innovative technologies for sustainability of Adriatic Sea, coordinated by the Croatian Chamber of Economy, and co-financed by the European Union, ERDF (European Regional Development Fund), through Interreg VA Italy-Croatia Programme (2014-2020).

The InnovaMare project benefits from the economic and managerial competencies of the DEAMS and its long tradition in business and innovation-related studies.
