Private companies were also present with technological innovations, producing an optimal synergy with the operational technical teams of the scientific vessels.

These Symposiums are held every 2 years and various innovations are presented in the mentioned areas, which favors our deployment in the operation of equipment in our different vessels such as the B/C Abate Molina.
