In a context where Portugal works to conquer the extension of its maritime platform beyond 200 miles, which will make our country the owner of one of the largest exclusive economic zones in the world, thanks to the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores, Jesus Reis answered José Manuel Rodrigues that “we have much more sea than land and that is why we have to bet more and more on robotics”.

“We’re going to have an impressive source monitoring requirement. And right now, we don’t have the capacity to monitor what we already have.”

The young man distinguished by the program ‘Madeira: New Talents+ Future’ understands that the country has to bet on research as a basis for decisions”, such as which areas to protect more or explore more, like mining. “The essential thing is to have data to evaluate the future impact”.

Pointing out that Madeira is rich in cobalt, in an underwater mountain range, a metal that is “essential for batteries and microchips,” the young man said that the region has “one of the largest points of this blue gold” today. An economic exploitation, if done, has to be done “with science at the base, not to make mistakes that have been made in Portugal.
