The Task Force for the Continental Shelf Extension Project (EMEPC), created in 2005, is a public institution belonging to the Ministry of the Sea, whose mission is to prepare, present and support the proposal for the extension of the Portuguese continental shelf to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLPC) until the process is completed at the United Nations.

In addition, EMEPC also aims to support research and development projects, namely through the use of LUSO ROV, promoting scientific knowledge on the deep sea environment and its natural resources.
