ACC10 is the Catalan Agency for Business and Competitiveness and EADA is participating in its Market Assessment Program (MAP) to develop and support projects towards innovation in order to bring these projects to the market.
EADA and ACC10 have been actively working together for many years and recently started to work with VICOROB –Computer Vision and Robotics of Universitat de Girona- in order to create a viable Business Plan to find the best approach to bring INSPECSUB project into the market. INSPECSUB is a set of technologies that comprises autonomous underwater vehicles, digital image processing, and different underwater mapping opportunities.

The team is supervised by Mr. Alexandre Blasi, which has a broad experience as engineer and entrepreneur, and nowadays is holding different executive positions in private companies.
The aim of the team is to assess the market opportunities and to develop a sustainable business model that ensures the viability of INSPECSUB as a profitable project that develops into a competitive business in the AUV industry.
