The Greenwich Maritime Centre (GMC) is a cross faculty initiative at the University of Greenwich that brings together a wide range of stakeholders from diverse backgrounds in maritime issues. The purpose of the GMC is to promote a greater understanding and social awareness of the relationships between sea and society, and to be a platform for developing sustainable solutions for maritime issues.
We aim to achieve this through:
Research and Enterprise
The GMC promotes engagement across faculties and departments within the University of Greenwich, and between university and non-university partners (business, industry and local communities) to identify new opportunities and to carry out innovative, multi-disciplinary maritime research and enterprise activity.
The GMC promotes the enhancement of maritime studies in existing courses at the University of Greenwich, and the development of new courses and programmes, including short courses that reflect the maritime agenda. We also provide life long learning opportunities for people to engage with maritime issues.
The GMC promotes building partnerships within the wider community, throughout South East England as well as nationally and internationally, to facilitate discussion and networking on maritime related issues. We aim to provide a regional focus of expertise in maritime issues accessible to a wide range of individuals and stakeholders.
