The main goal of the project is the development of a reliable and transparent system for the continuous assessment of the environmental impact of deep-sea exploration. With €16M funding - with close to €12M provided by the EC's Horizon Europe programme -, the project brings together 26 institutions from 10 countries, five of them Portuguese, including the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science (INESC TEC) - also acting as the project's leader.

Researchers from INESC TEC, A. Silva Matos Metalomecânica, Porto’s School of Engineering (ISEP), the Portuguese Institute for Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) and the Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR) developed a system dedicated to the collection and life-support of species up to 1000 meters deep, within the scope of the HIPERSEA project. This solution enables bringing the species to the surface without any damage caused by pressure differences and keeping them alive for further studies. The first tests took place in April and May, aboard the Mário Ruivo research vessel.
