Course Description

In the last centuries, humanity has fully explored and mapped the emerged fraction of Earth surface today it has growing interest in exploring and exploiting the submerged fraction of the Earth as well as the nearby space regions, intensively. To this aim, engineers provide new powerful means (robots, underwater and space communication systems, new nano-satellite solutions, energy extraction from the sea) the exploration and exploitation of resources also pose problems relating to the biology of living beings. Moreover a wide range of new issues arise, about the economic implications and legal implications. The School aims to provide a concise overview of the relevant scientific challenges and development prospects in a unitary framework where issues of economic and environmental impact, potential conflicts and regulatory assessments are also addressed. The Seasonal School will take an holistic approach and will introduce participants to the key technologies in a unitary framework, where the engineering role is viewed together with biological and medical issues, economic aspects and legal problems. At the end of the Seasonal School, the participants will have a comprehensive overview of the future trends in the challenging topics of space and sea exploration.
