1.618 La Fondation, programme Esprit de VELOX

Renaissance Research Vessel, No discharges, No noise pollution, Innovation, Exploration, Non invasive maritime research

With 42 people aboard, Esprit de VELOX will be able to access all the world’s oceans. She will be completely autonomous, using the most up-to-date instrumentation for observation, measurement, sampling and analysis; both close inshore and to a depth of 10 000 feet. A real floating scientific base, she represents a new holistic approach to maritime research; technical, intellectual and philosophical. Esprit de VELOX will provide the platform for individual research but more importantly will promote cross-disciplinary projects in the same ecosystem. The aquisition of knowledge, scientific discovery and artistic expression are all the visible traces of a common adventure. A melting pot of intuition, individual and collective experience and chance, will result in new protocols and new approaches. Following a Renaisance model, Esprit de VELOX will enable young talents to be nurtured by providing a floating residence dedicated to scientific research, innovation and artistic expression. Esprit de Velox will embark specialists in human, life and social sciences, they will work together with artists, engineers and environmental diplomats. From the philosophical origins of the programme to the technical and architectural features of the ship, everything works together to allow us to re-examine our place in the World. On board, interdisciplinary research will be the rule and transdisciplinary research the ambition; leading to cooperative partnerships, joint protocols and audacious concepts. Esprit de VELOX will pioneer at sea, a non-invasive maritime research of the Earth system. This laboratory of the modern world aims to reveal possibilities by studying ecosystems from the inside out; it re-establishes human and scientific bonds, sharing and disseminating its knowledge along the way.
