DAN Europe and Cousteau Divers - Participated Science Research Projects
The two organisations will cooperate in Participative Science projects, where research on Diving Physiology and Diving. Medicine meets study and conservation of the marine environment. “I look forward to a continued partnership with DAN,” said Pierre-Yves Cousteau, President of Cousteau Divers. “We are both goal-oriented organisations ultimately working for a better, safer planet.”
Sharing similar core values
“A partnership between DAN and Cousteau Divers is a natural fit,” said Prof. Alessandro Marroni, CEO and chief medical officer of DAN Europe. “The two organizations share similar core values. DAN has a long-standing commitment to education and research. We were “pioneers” of participative science in diving. In fact, since 1994 DAN has been conducting several research projects on medicine and physiology in diving. This is why we liked the Cousteau Divers project.”
Active involvement in scientific projects
Cousteau Divers is a large program of participative science based on the creation of a network of divers. Divers and diving centres become actively involved in scientific projects to monitor and conserve the marine biodiversity all around the world. The program includes a vast participative multimedia branch, whereby divers can compare their underwater images to the Cousteau archive images, creating powerful before/after products which hold both scientific and aesthetic value. By uniting a community of divers who are concerned about the marine environment, Cousteau Divers brings the legacy of Jacques-Yves Cousteau to life, making each diver an agent of the study and conservation of the aquatic realm.
