Despite each and every organisation within the marine sector facing its own unique problems during 2020, it is of the greatest comfort to know that we still believe that working together is the only way for us to move forward.
This is reflected in the many new partnerships the Institute has forged in the past year: we have built relationships with organisations from across the breadth of the marine industry from sectors such as biofouling and ballast water management, to education and decommissioning, who have all joined as Marine Members of the IMarEST.
Through these partnerships, we will be providing access to membership benefits, learning and training resources and professional development for their employees and look forward to a host of bespoke projects as we work together to help tackle ocean issues.
We’d like to extend a warm welcome to the Marine Members below who have joined us throughout the year and look forward to an exciting year together in 2021, in what will no doubt bring an impressive assortment of opportunities.
