The James Fisher Marine Services Prize

This prize was established in the early days of Engineering at UEA as the product of the support that key individuals in the James Fisher Marine Services Group were giving to the development of our courses.  Martin Dronfield, Group Business Development Director, held a position on our Industrial Advisory Board and John Best, having headed up The East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) for the first decade of its existence, as Head of Sustainability within Fisher Group continued to support UEA Engineering.  The prize benefited from the generous support of the GROW:Offshore Wind funding programme.  At a careers event on campus John and Lawrence Coates (UEA ENG) agreed the basis of the prize.

At that time the James Fisher Group was a collection of 22 companies including Fendercare Marine, James Fisher Marine Services and James Fisher Nuclear.
