Department of Maritime Studies

High-level education and knowledge-based R&D shaping the future of maritime Norway

The shipping industry is going greener. Norway needs new expertise and knowledge-based research, development, and innovation that enables the sustainable use of marine resources in the future and ensures sustainable maritime value creation for the Norwegian society.
