Northern Maritime University

The Northern Maritime University Network is a research project funded by the EU-Interreg IVB North Sea Programme, having the global objective to build up a strong transnational network of universities in the North Sea Region (NSR) which intensively and continuously integrates relevant stakeholders from the maritime business sector.
The existing expertise of the international partners in the NMU project is being combined to develop multidisciplinary and internationally oriented qualification offerings for the maritime industry.
The project consortium has diverse and specialised knowledge of the maritime and port industry. Its members are based in five countries around the North Sea:

  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom

The project commenced in April 2008 and is developing over 54 months. The Northern Maritime University (NMU) network has now entered its second phase of piloting and specialised modules development.
