Socio-economic impacts

Given the prominent role of Argo for climate change research, impacts are expected to be large on the longer run. NAOS will also directly contribute to the development of the economic sector through the partnership with the NKE SME. Thanks to this project, this company will consolidate its European leadership in ocean instrumentation. NKE objective is to expand by at least a factor two its Argo float market shares in Europe and worldwide.
