Pole Mer Bretagne Atlantique is deeply involved in the cutting edge R&D activities of the maritime sectors and especially in topics related to Earth Observation. With a current membership of more than 360, PMBA possesses a substantial knowledge of maritime RTD capabilities and is willing to share its experience in order to consolidate RTD and business capabilities.

PMBA is a ‘triple helix’ based cluster that has been acting as a catalyst of innovation since 2005. To date, PMBA has certified more than 422 innovative maritime projects for a whole budget of more than 1.09B€, providing the necessary skills to confirm the powerful role of regional clusters in promoting innovation capacity-building.

Furthermore, PMBA with the support and expertise of the Scientific Interest Group Remote Sensing Brittany (GIS Bretel), host the Regional Contact Office Brittany (RCO) that aims to promote and support the development of maritime COPERNICUS 'liked' applications and services. RCO Brittany also aims at raising the awareness of these applications and services at the regional level. Overall the RCO Brittany, along with the Brittany’s region implication within NEREUS (Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies), helps to enhance the already existing regional COPERNICUS capabilities and skills and facilitate the development of maritime services for end users.
