The 7th International Marine Debris Conference (7IMDC), the world’s longest-running international conference series dedicated to the issue of marine litter and plastic pollution, took place from 18th to 23rd of September, 2022 in Busan, South Korea. SEACLEAR, with a mission to build the first autonomous robots that will clean the seafloor, could not be absent from such an event.
Stefan Sosnowski, from our partner TUM, co-hosted a technical session titled “Innovative Technology for searching, identifying and recovering marine debris” which was part of the 'Technology and Innovation' track of the conference. The session was organized in collaboration with The Ocean Cleanup, The Seacleaners, and the Innoplastic MAELSTROM project.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 871295.
The SEACLEAR project spans four years, running from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2023.
