Preserving underwater cultural heritage
The preservation of underwater cultural heritage (UCH) such as shipwrecks, sunken cities, and prehistoric art work and treasures is important. It should be documented and protected. Efforts should also be made to raise public awareness and knowledge. The EU-funded TECTONIC project proposes an intersectoral collaboration between academic and non-academic professionals related to UCH to provide knowledge and solutions to the complex issues still existing in the field. The project will enhance the exchange of expertise and targets training for the implementation of advanced techniques, instruments and methods. It will establish a link between research, higher education and business. TECTONIC will also assess the development of low-cost robotic systems for exploration, documentation and protection of UCH.
