SUBMERSE (SUBMarine cablEs for ReSearch and Exploration) is an innovative EU-funded project which aims to utilise existing submarine cables, already used by the research and education networking community, to monitor the Earth and its systems.

By utilising existing equipment and infrastructure in a new way, the project not only avoids the need for extra hardware under the sea, but also improves the return on investment by enhancing and widening its use.


SUBMERSE is a collaboration between 24 parties: 18 partners (including the coordinator), five affiliated partners, and one associated partner. The project will work closely with the diverse research communities who intend on using the data, to design and build the data generation service together, thereby creating a highly collaborative environment where data is generated by and for all parties.
