AbstractThe European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water-column Observatory (EMSO) is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC), which aims to explore the oceans, to gain a better understanding of phenomena happening within and below them, and to explain the critical role that these phenomena play in the broader Earth systems. Within the scope of its activities, EMSO ERIC, throughout its 11 Regional Facilities placed at key sites around Europe, supports the development of advanced marine technologies for successful implementation of key European policy goals such as achieving Good Environmental Status (GES) under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), along with other initiatives such as the Copernicus Marine Service. In this respect efforts are being made to identify and promote Best Practices for the design and operations of subsea observatories, to foster the implementation of interoperable solutions between Regional Facilities and to develop new and innovative technologies to measure the Essential Ocean Variables (EOV) at all depths, addressing meanwhile issues such as low-power, miniaturization, modularity, interoperability and low-cost. Recently, the EMSO Generic Instrumental Module (EGIM) has been developed to acquire a wide range of ocean parameters, including temperature, conductivity, pressure, dissolved O2, turbidity, ocean currents, and passive acoustics, in a long-term consistent, accurate and comparable manner from disciplines such as biology, geology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and computer science, from polar to subtropical environments, through the water column down to the deep sea.Cooperation and co-investment with industries are therefore significant for EMSO ERIC. Sensor manufacturer and observatory industries can benefit from EMSO ERIC collaboration, but also other industry sectors such as oil and gas industry, deep-sea mining, fisheries and renewables. Research and development in the field of maritime sensing technologies in Europe represent significant potential for further growth in this sector and co-creation and co-development of research should be a pre-requisite, ensuring that the ultimate potential users of the technology are involved in the design of the projects from the out
