Goals and outcomes

The project exemplifies the goals of the UT Austin | Portugal call in a number of important ways.

First, it is an exploratory study with an emphasis on the scientific areas outlined by the Atlantic International Research Center, specifically deep ocean science, as well as CoLab Emerging Technologies Research, specifically digital media.

Second, it brings together an exceptionally strong collaborative team of researchers and practitioners from Portugal and UT Austin. 

These individuals represent a diversity of theoretical, methodological and practical backgrounds, which translate into a strong foundation and allow scaffolding for future collaborations.

Third, not only does this project offer important insights for academic research and theory development, but it also offers vital practical implications, including the development of white papers on emerging technologies in new scientific areas as well as the potential for commercialization of the project’s technological and communication deliverables.
