SMTF has been asked and also decided to accept to be part of a reference group of the project SCOOT (Swedish Centre for Ocean Observing technology).

SCOOT is Swedish Centre for Ocean Observing Technology. We enable marine research and innovation. We focus on small and innovative companies in automation, sensor technology, communication and adjacent areas of marine technology.

SCOOT provides marine expertise and infrastructure (ships, autonomous platforms, instruments, sensors, workshop). Together we create a dynamic environment with collaboration and problem solving!

Behind SCOOT is a consortium consisting of the University of Gothenburg, MMT Sweden AB and SMHI. External funding during 2019 – 2021 comes from Tillväxtverket. The SCOOT’s reference group includes VGR, RISE, Lighthouse and SMTF.
