Sponsors and Partners

MEDIN is funded and governed by a consortium of Sponsors. These Sponsors include a range of UK marine organisations who support MEDIN’s principles and lead the UK in marine data management.

MEDIN Sponsors steer MEDIN’s direction and contribute their expertise during the creation of the MEDIN business plan. Becoming a MEDIN Sponsor will give you:

  • Leverage in a ~£0.5 million/year project with only a relatively small outlay per Sponsor. Benefit from pooled resources achieving more than you could individually.
  • Direct involvement in a project that benefits the entire marine community.
  • A say on the strategic direction of UK marine data management.
  • A place on the MEDIN Sponsors’ Board, the ultimate decision-making body for MEDIN.
  • Promotion at all MEDIN events with your organisation's logo displayed clearly.
  • Use of the ‘MEDIN Sponsor’ logo and MEDIN promotional materials.

To officially join the network and become a MEDIN Sponsor, please email MEDIN stating your interest at enquiries@medin.org.uk. The following 15 organisations currently sponsor MEDIN:
