The International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU) is a global network of leading maritime universities providing Maritime Education and Training (MET) of seafarers for the global shipping industry.
IAMU was founded by 7 maritime universities, academies and colleges from 5 countries in 1999 with a shared recognition of the significance of maritime education and training during the rapid globalisation of international shipping. Since then, IAMU has significantly expanded its membership to 63 of the world's leading maritime universities and faculties, with The Nippon Foundation as a permanent special member bringing the total to 64 members. IAMU activities are supported by a grant from The Nippon Foundation and annual membership fees from IAMU members.
