The KM3NeT European project aims to construct a large volume underwater neutrino telescope in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea. Thanks to a dedicated funding by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) in its first phase, referred as KM3NeT-Italia, an 8-towers detector is under construction. The detection element of the telescope, the optical module, is composed by...

The KM3NeT European project aims to construct a large volume underwater neutrino telescope in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea. INFN and KM3NeT collaboration, thanks to a dedicated funding of 21.000.000 (PON 2007-2013), are committed to building and deploying the Phase 1 of the telescope, composed of a network of detection units: 8 towers, equipped with single PMT optical modules, and 24...

The MEUST (Mediterranean Eurocentre for Underwater Sciences and Technologies) is a permanent deep sea cabled infrastructure currently being deployed off shore of Toulon, France. MEUST is shared between the neutrino physics and astro-physics communities in the context of the European KM3NeT project, and the Environmental Science communities as the West-Ligurian site of the EMSO European...

GRBNeT is a project aiming at the detection of ultra-high energy neutrinos, for example neutrinos originating from Gamma Ray Bursts. The goal is to design, construct and test-deploy a prototype unit of an autonomous (data/energy-wise) neutrino detector. Being autonomous is crucial since for the detection of ultra-high energy neutrinos a very large volume of water is required. Large...
Currently the next-generation km3-scale neutrino telescope Baikal-GVD is under construction in Lake Baikal. Assembling of Gigaton Volume Detector (GVD) is highly dependent on an ice cover on Lake Baikal. This cover, used as stable platform, gives a lot of benefits for GVD deployment, but makes a strict timeline constraints. So, assembling procedures are tuned to minimize deployment time and...
Mr Christophe Tardy (POWERSEA)
PowerSea is a spin-off company based on research done by the french CNRS on the wet-mateable underwater connectors. The reliability and the cost of subsea connections are a key issue for deep sea projects. The company has already developed a wet-mate connector adapted to marine renewable energies, featuring a high power (24 kV-300A on 3 phases) and a cost adapted to the return of...
