Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance project wins International Cooperation Award
The Marine Institute led project, Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance Co-ordination and Support Action (AORA-CSA), received the first Atlantic Project Award for International Cooperation on Tuesday, 27th September, at the Atlantic Stakeholders Conference in Croke Park, Dublin.

Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries presented the award to Dr Peter Heffernan and Dr Margaret Rae of the Marine Institute, the lead partner in the Horizon 2020 funded project to implement the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean cooperation.

The award recognises the AORA-CSA as an outstanding success story in the Atlantic area, highlighting international best practices, and promoting the key priorities of the European Union's Atlantic Strategy and Atlantic Action Plan, embodied in the Galway Statement and its potential support to the Blue Economy. Along with the Galway based Marine Institute, partners in the project include Ciencia Viva (Portugal), International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES, Denmark), IFREMER (France), IMR (Norway), PLOCAN (Spain) RANNIS (Iceland), as well as advisory board members drawn from DFO Canada; NOAA, USA; JPI Oceans (Brussels), UNESCO International Oceanographic Commission, World Ocean Council, and Brazilian and South African representatives.
