We are the communication and dissemination partner for DexROV, a project to make underwater operations easier and more flexible through the development of cost-effective remotely-operated-vehicles (ROVs).
DexROV (Effective Dexterous ROV Operations in Presence of Communications Latencies) is a project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. The project will carry out unmanned underwater operations using an enhanced ROV and a vessel equipped with a satellite communication link. This will be connected to a monitoring and control centre, allowing onshore human management using exoskeleton technologies. The results of this project will have a significant impact on the cost and operation of equipment and personnel used for obtaining energy from the ocean, deep-sea mineral extraction, aquaculture and general observation and exploration.
Launching from January 2015, DexROV will be implemented over 3.5 years and will draw on expertise from a consortium of seven partners across six European countries. Our role as consortium member will be to maximise the visibility and impact of the project through cross-media communication and dissemination activities.
What we do:
- We coordinated the design of DexROV graphics, including logo, website, business cards, etc. as well as commissioned the project’s graphics, animations, and videos.
- We set up and maintain the DexROV website, writing and publishing the latest news articles, highlights, and event recaps as well as project milestones. We also create the DexROV Newsletter.
- We manage DexROV social media channels (Twitter and YouTube).
