In the framework of WP2, the objective of NEANIAS is to develop and integrate at EOSC three innovative cross-cutting services (TRL 8) for tackling operationally underwater-related studies and engineering tasks towards engaging several user communities including: archaeologists, geologists, oil & gas/ engineers, renewable energy planners, marine robotics, civil engineers, computer vision/ machine learning software engineers and insurance.

The European Landscape of Innovation can be characterised by low level of investment capability and intention to involve investment, as well as the low level of understanding of R&D trends and funding opportunities in the SME sector. As for the R&D networks, there is a disconnection and the entrepreneurial attitude of commercialisation is also lagging behind. In general, public R&D is not connected with business, which makes the utilisation of research results burdensome, and it requires high cost to fail.
