• The research centre is to be used for submarine study, as well as for both housing and leisure activities for the users (the scientists).
• The centre may occupy no more than a 3,000 sqm area. The project will be located approximately 100 meters off shore and parallel to it, within a determined perimeter at the sea (available in the attached site plan).
