GEORGE is a Horizon Europe-funded project that develops
technologies to improve ocean observations. The technologies developed
will represent the next level in systematic long-term autonomous ocean
Operational models for next-generation, high-precision sensors and platform technology for monitoring the ocean carbon system. Simple and energy-efficient, ready for the market.
Fully integrated carbon observing systems across European marine research infrastructures, enabling better data to support science and decision-making.
Easy-to-use online training platform, offering training for technical staff to enable them to operate seamlessly across research infrastructures.
GEORGE brings together 28 leading partners from academia and industry alike, including three research infrastructures: EMSO ERIC, Euro-Argo ERIC and ICOS ERIC. Together these three ERICs cover the whole expanse of European marine waters.
As the Earth’s largest ecosystem, the ocean absorbs massive amounts of carbon and excess heat from the atmosphere. Despite its pivotal role in climate change, global ocean observations have thus far been severely lacking: a major part of the world’s oceans have never been mapped or even seen by humans. A new EU project, GEORGE,…
