Welcome researchers and students.

In this section you will find information about the organization’s research activities. One of our main goals is to promote maritime research in Israel and its environs. 

Our boat, the “Mediterranean Explorer” is the main tool through which we support research. The ship was built according to the special needs of marine research tools and can support a wide range of research areas such as geology, biology, oceanography and archeology.  Marine science students from higher education institutions in Israel visit our research ship and use it for the practical practice of the material studied in the classroom but the “Mediterranean Explorer” has also been used as a platform for international workshops for advanced research students.

Our policy is to provide the scientific community with advanced equipment at a reasonable price.

‘Request for support in research’ forms should be sent to Itay Katzman, our Marine Operations manager, at itay@ecoocean.org
