École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) du Quebec triumphed over 14 other teams to win the SAUC-E '12, the 7th Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge - Europe. The team's AUV named "SONIA" obtained the highest score successfully completing a number of mission tasks. The 2nd prize went to University of Luebeck from Germany (2011 Champion) with its AUV "Hanse", while ENSTA Bretagne – team Sauc'isse and Sardine from France took home the 3rd prize, closely followed by team AVALON from University of Bremen who entered the final phase as "best qualifier".

The competition was hosted for the third time, from 6 to 13 July 2012, by the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), formerly known as the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC) at its waterfront, in La Spezia, Italy

The CATHARSIS2 sea trial, scheduled for 5-20 October 2009 in the waters near Elba Island, Italy, will investigate novel object detection technologies. Scientists will deploy autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) equipped with advanced sensors to detect and locate dummy mines (with no explosives) that are used in this exercise.

From 6 to 13 July École Polytechnique, École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) du Quebec, ENSTA Bretagne with two teams, ESIEA Paris with two teams, Heriot-Watt University, University of Bremen, University of Cambridge, University of Florence, University of Genoa, University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria - AVORA, University of Luebeck with two teams, University of West England, participate in the 2012 SAUC-Europe (Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge – Europe www.sauc-europe.com) edition at STO-CMRE (Science and Technology Organization – Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation, formerly NURC), hosting it for the third time.

For one week, 15 teams of students, coming from 12 Universities, compete and test their autonomous underwater vehicles at the CMRE waterfront in La Spezia (Italy).

On 13 July 2012, journalists have the possibility to attend the final runs of the competition, interview the participants and meet CMRE representatives.

Following the success of euRathlon 2015, the European Robotics League has entrusted the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), based in La Spezia (Italy), with the organization of the 2017 event devoted to the field of robots as a first response in emergency situations. Dates and venue of the competition were announced on 22 February during a press conference held by CMRE and Municipality.

ERL Emergency Robots is a civilian, outdoor robotics competition with a focus on realistic, multi-domain emergency response scenarios. For 9 days international teams of university students and industry experts will test their robots’ abilities to tackle more and more complex real-world situations in front of an international jury. For the first time robots will be also required to release autonomously emergency kits to simulate missing workers. Innovative solutions and remarkable levels of autonomy will be rewarded.

The European Robotics League is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research, under the RockEU2 project grant agreement n.688441.

From 22 to 27 July 2013, the NATO CMRE participated in the 2013 sea trials of the MORPH (Marine Robotic System of Self-Organising, logically Linked Physical Nodes) European Commission project, which aims to test multiple-vehicle coordination and formation flying based on echo-location. The trial occurred off the coast of Toulon (France) at the European Centre of Underwater Technologies, part of the French Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer).
CMRE's contribution to the 2013 sea trials was instrumental in the success of the test as the coordination algorithms developed by the project partners rely on the ability to exchange data and estimate relative positions of the vehicles. With this core capability the Consortium (32 scientists from five countries and other eight research organizations) successfully demonstrated coordinated manoeuvres between four autonomous vehicles (two underwater and two surface) in a diamond-shaped formation.
