What We Do
We are mainly involved in Training and Research, although occasionally, we carry out Technical Translations.
Our Training Activity targets the market needs. We know that the industry needs knowledgeable professionals. Our Training Programme is designed to enhance the competencies of maritime industry professionals in which the theoretical concepts are mixed with practical work and industry examples, giving Participants a broad but insightful perspective of the maritime transport activity. The Training Programme covers the areas of Distribution Channels, Logistics and Supply Chain, and Maritime Economics. Courses within each area cover different topics, and their contents are aligned with the industry trends. Training is delivered either online or in-class. While online class training provides an opportunity to manage time more efficiently where busy professionals fit their training needs around their lifestyle and work schedule, in-class training offers the opportunity to establish good human relationships, a feature from which the maritime industry has benefitted.
Our Research Activity is centred on Researchers’ work to bring out the best in them. We organise Research Events where researchers can present their work and then select a set of research papers to be published in well-established journals under the scope of a special issue. In addition, we like to establish a bridge between the Research Community and Industry. We firmly believe that research must have a purpose. Therefore, we want our Research Events to be meeting points where the Research Community can meet the various Maritime Industry sectors and identify new research areas worth investigating. Well-elaborated research and development activities have a role to play since they will help the Industry grow and become more sustainable in the long term. The worldwide Research Community is currently addressing numerous maritime research areas (for instance, autonomous vessels, green ports, maritime training, and alternative maritime fuels), and in this regard, any contribution that benefits the Industry is more than welcomed. The first edition of the 'World of Shipping Portugal Conference' was in November 2019. The fourth edition of the Conference is taking place in January 2023.
