The Confederation of European Maritime Technology Societies (CEMT) is an independent confederation of professional institutions (those involved in education and professional development) and learned societies (those facilitating the exchange of information) in the field of maritime technology.
Through its member societies, CEMT is able to call upon the knowledge, skills and experience of over 35,000 professional naval architects, marine engineers and others in the field of maritime technology. It is therefore uniquely placed to contribute to the success of the European maritime industry.
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) is a long-standing member of CEMT and has participated in and supported many of its previous events.
