• Our Vision

    According to the IMO, more than 90% of international trade is carried out by utilizing the world’s seas and oceans. Moreover, the deep waters that surround the globe provide us with nourishment, energy, and natural resources. Thus, the Institute of Global Maritime Studies believes the public should become aware of how vital this industry is to our existence in that it has been the foundation of progress and has shaped our global identity.

    The Greek Chapter of the IGMS serves to:

    1. Increase public awareness about maritime related issues.
    2. Provide education on a broad spectrum of maritime related topics such as engineering, energy, logistics, security, naval science, history, among other areas.
    3. Raise funds to support the academic pursuits of students in maritime related fields.
    4. Create synergies with Greek maritime companies
