The main goal of the EUROMAMMALS network is to produce collaborative science, which includes scientific papers in peer review journals, but also participation in congresses and workshops where themes relevant to the project are discussed. Education is also an important element of the projects, especially for PhD and MSc students.
Below a list of the main outputs/achievements pertinent to the EUROMAMMALS initiative as a whole. See also network-specific outputs in the network websites.

Training is key in the EUROMAMMALS project because only with appropriate tools and knowledge of advanced management and analysis technical is possible to exploit the golden mine embedded in the huge mass of data provided by biotelemetry sensors and to link them with all the other information available on animals, their interactions and environment. Workshops, summer schools, publications, seminars are the main way for EUROMAMMALS partner to train and get trained on these topics. In addition to the publications and the PhD students who are developing their research completely or partially in the framework of EUROMAMMALS, the main achievement in this sense are the summers schools that were organized on data management:
