SignalGeneriX Co-host the MariaBOX EU project kick-off meeting in Limassol

SignalGeneriX, as part of the MariaBox Consortium have secured funding under the European Commission's FP7 Programme to develop a MARINE environmental in situ Assessment and monitoring tool BOX.

SignalGeneriX with the project coordinator, Cyprus Research and Innovation Centre (CyriC) hosted the project kick off meeting took place in Limassol on the 6th and 7th of March, in Limassol, Cyprus.

MariaBox will develop a wireless marine environment analysis device for monitoring chemical and biological pollutants while installed into a buoy, a maritime means of transport or a mooring. The device, based on novel biosensors, will be of high-sensitivity, portable and capable of repeating measurements over a long time, allowing permanent deployment at sea. The word “MARIA” is the plural of the Latin “mar” (sea) and expresses the wide applicability that this system offers in multiple locations where low-cost and real-time in situ analytical monitoring devices are required.
