When Samuel Dupont, then post-doctoral biologist working on oysters and their diseases, spoke with oyster farmers, he was always astonished at the lack of information and tools available to the profession to monitor water quality. The oyster producers had to travel by boat and tour the parks daily to take even the temperature. He then had the idea with his wife, Charlotte Dupont, who worked as a data scientist in the field of IoT, to develop a practical, easy to use and remotely controllable system to monitor water quality. A system that also makes it possible to anticipate problems thanks to AI!
These two PhDs in Biology then created Bioceanor in 2018 to develop the first connected underwater weather station AquaREAL.
Since then, Bioceanor has received numerous awards and distinctions, including the recognition of AquaREAL by Solar Impulse foundation as one of the 1000 most efficient and sustainable solutions for the planet!
Based in Sophia-Antipolis, near Nice in France, Bioceanor is at the heart of the first European Technopole for innovation. We are a team of 15 employees on site, in premises including a microbiology laboratory and a microelectronics workshop. Other collaborators are in Norway and USA to support our international developement.
