On Friday, March 12, 2021, we held the mid-term reporting presentation session of the seabed exploration technology development project “DeSET”. On the day, three teams participating in the project presented the progress of their technological development.
The presentation was also streamed online to the public in order to discuss the possibility of collaboration with private companies regarding the technology developed through DeSET. On the day of the event, 170 people who were interested in seafloor exploration technology registered to attend the event.
