Among the objectives of Mediterranea Project there’s the scientific one.

We work directly and cooperate with third parties for the defense of the sea and the marine environment of the Mediterranean. Our boat is available to the scientists, researchers and students working in the public and private institutions, universities and laboratories with a central focus on the environment, the sea, the air, fishes, ecc… Mediterranea aims to be a “floating laboratory” at the disposal of the science.


Here there are our partners and the first scientific research project we cooperate in:



“Astrophysics aboard Mediterranea” – an introduction project on Astrophysics, sponsored and funded by INAF – National Institute of Astrophysics, with Progetto Mediterranea and UNIMED – Union of Mediterranean Universities. This training initiative is aimed at undergraduate students in Physics and Astrophysics.
