The TurLab facility is a laboratory, equipped with a 5 m diameter and 1 m deep rotating tank,located in the Physics Department of the University of Turin. Originally built mainly to study problems where system rotation plays a key role in the fluid behaviour such as in atmospheric and oceanic flows at different scales, in the past few years the TurLab facility has been used to perform experiments related to observation of Extreme Energy Cosmic Rays from space using the fluo-rescence technique, as in the case of the JEM-EUSO mission, where the diffuse night brightness and artificial light sources can vary significantly in time and space inside the Field of View of the telescope. The description of the EUSO@TurLab project and its first results have been presented in the past. During the last two years many upgrades have been performed on the instrumenta-tion mainly related to the read-out electronics: SPACIROC-1 (employed in EUSO-Balloon and EUSO-TA prototypes) and SPACIROC-3 (EUSO-SPB and Mini-EUSO) which allowed to test a fully equipped Elementary Cell of JEM-EUSO. This phase has been named Phase II. Moreover, the Focal Surface of EUSO-Balloon with the level 1 trigger logic implemented in the Photo-Detector Module has been tested at TurLab after the Canada flight. Finally, tests related to the possibility to employ a EUSO-like detector for other type of applications such as wave monitor-
ing and imaging detector have been pursued. The tests and results obtained in EUSO@TurLab Project - Phase II are described.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
