  • Centrale Nantes (France)
  • Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM - Spain)
Other academic partners providing internship topics among other actions:

  • Dunarea de Jos University of Galati (Romania)
  • ICAM - Institut Catholique d’Arts et Métiers (France)
  • Southampton Solent University (UK)
  • University of Genova (Italy)
  • West Pomeranian University of Technology (Poland)
Seven prestigious universities worldwide are also partners of the consortium:

  • University of Michigan (USA)
  • University of Osaka (Japan)
  • Istanbul Technical University (Turkey)
  • Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brasil)
  • Pusan National University (South Korea)
  • University of New South Wales (Australia)
  • University of Sciences and Technology of Oran (Algeria)
Finally, a strategic Advisory Board consisting of high level decision makers of leading European maritime companies and representatives from the associated universities actively contribute to the total quality management.
