EAMNet wins charity award

EAMNet was recognised for its significant contribution to capacity building in Africa by the UK’s Charity Awards. The Charity Awards is Civil Society Media’s annual awards programme which is held to identify, recognise and reward those organizations doing exceptional work in all areas of charitable activity. 

The award recognised EAMNet’s commitment to international research to help society understand and manage the resources of our global ocean and the project and the entry was described by one of the judges as having a “global strategic impact”.

Steve Groom the project coordinator said “he was delighted that the EAMNet project won the Environment and Conservation category at the Charity Awards since it recognises the valuable contribution that PML and its African and European partners have achieved in training, research collaboration and satellite data provision to Africa. Although the Framework 7 project has ended, it is gratifying that many activities, including data deliveries, are continuing whilst the bilateral contacts established will allow collaboration in the future.”
