fluidion is one of the 17 international teams competing in the Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health X-PRIZE competition aimed at developing a low-cost highly accurate system for monitoring ocean acidification. The fluidion system is currently installed in the test bay of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute for a period of 80 days, during which the system will acquire high frequency data. The prototype is based on the patented fluidion technology, allowing in-situ recalibration of sensors to reach accuracies previously possible only in the lab. fluidion is the only French team in the competition, and was supported by both the European Union through the Climate KIC Startup Accelerator France program, and by BPI France.
