Society and the Sea Conference

15-16 September 2016

University of Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London, UK

The 1st Greenwich Maritime Conference ‘Society and the Sea’ was a great success. There were 36 presentations representing a diverse range of maritime issues across conservation, fisheries, arts, history, health and wellbeing and the blue economy. Many thanks to all the delegates who took part and in particular to the five keynote speakers, the presenters and the session chairs. Thanks to all for making it such a worthwhile event. Final thanks goes to the excellent organisation skills of the University of Greenwich FACH Research Office for going the extra mile and making sure everything ran smoothly and also to the Trafalgar Tavern for a fantastic and memorable conference dinner.

Keynote presentations, abstracts and photos from the event will be uploaded to this blog and the conference website soon!




Successful Short Course in Maritime Piracy

The GMI held a very successful one-day course on Saturday 16th June 2012 at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. It explored both a historical look at piracy, its development and the challenges faced by the maritime industry today. We were delighted to be able to draw on the knowledge from our very own Professor in Maritime Security, Chris Bellamy along with Dr Christian Bueger from Cardiff University, Peter Cook from SAMI and Neil Smith from Lloyds Market Association. This team delivered their seminar-style course to an impressive 18 delegates who were all presented with a certificate of attendance at the end of the day. We would like to thank everyone involved for making this day a success. Further details will now be posted about our next short course in July!
