1st CADDY Workshop was organized as a part of the EMRA'14 - Workshop on EU-funded Marine Robotics and Applications. Founders of this new workshop are coordinators of four FP7 projects related to marine robotics: CADDY, MORPH, ARROWS and PANDORA


The underlying motivation of this new workshop is to increase the efficiency in orchestration and dissemination across EU marine research. We have observed a close coupling between individual FP7 projects and their intended application audience, yet many of the technologies developed are applicable beyond their motivating problem. Currently, for a marine technology stakeholder to fully digest EU marine research requires attending too many overly technical, and overly specific individual workshops. We hope EMRA2014 will condense an exciting range of cutting edge research developments into a single manageable event.


EMRA'14 in numbers:

  • 4 FP7 projects
  • 7 speakers from industry
  • 9 speakers from academia
  • more than 100 participants from all over Europe
