POSEIDON is both a geographically and scientifically distributed infrastructure in
Greek seas offering end-to-end services both to science and to society (Korres et al., 2014).
Complementary nodes both in offshore and coastal environments, integrated into a unique system,
comprise the system. The POSEIDON infrastructure has participated to the TNA activity of several
projects, including FIXO3, JERICO and JERICONEXT, providing data and hosting different types of
novel equipment for scientific (CIEBIO, MEDACID, TOFU, LO3CAted, CarbonAS, FluorMed-1,
MicroPlastox, MONICOAST) and industry (AGE-CO-DEEP, IMLOC-AISPAR, INPOW-AISPAR,
LETS-SAT) experiments and studies.
