Under this contract, access for user groups will be provided to the Infrastructure entitled Marine Environment Test and Research Infrastructure (METRI). This Infrastructure, located at Brest and Boulogne-sur-mer in France is owned and operated by IFREMER, the French Research Institute for Sustainable Sea Exploitation.
Within the Infrastructure, access will be made available to the five following installations.
- the deep wave testing basin,
- the water circulation testing basin,
- the hyperbaric testing tank laboratory,
- the material behaviour testing laboratory - the marine sensor evaluation laboratory.
During the contract duration, it is expected that 20 short-term projects will be selected and that a minimum of 40 users will benefit from access to this Infrastructure. The total number of experimental days to be provided is 200 for the five installations. This access will be provided free of charge to the user groups given access to the Infrastructure under this contract and will include all logistical, technical and scientific support that is normally provided to external users of the Infrastructure.
