New Greek partnership to focus on marine environmental research and protection

The Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association (HELMEPA) and the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) have formed a new partnership with the aim of contributing to Greece's marine environmental protection efforts.

The partners said they will develop and exploit tools and practices to promote and strengthen research, decontamination, and protection of the marine environment.

Under a recently signed memorandum of understanding (MOU), the two organisations will focus on the recording/acquisition of scientific data on marine pollution and circular economy in Greece, education and training of young scientists in marine sciences, joint participation in environmental and maritime schemes/initiatives, and raising awareness throughout Greece on pollution prevention and protection of the marine environment.
