Maritime Careers Fair

Together with Aalborg University and ShippingLab, Maritime Research Alliance is hosting a ‘Maritime Careers Fair’ in Aalborg on March 6.


It is free for all companies to participate, but it is required that participating companies can offer either a student assistant position, an internship position, full-time employment, or a topic for a thesis proposal within the foreseeable future.

Among the participating companies, we have MAN Energy Solutions, Logimatic – We’re now Init, OSK Design, Sternula, Danish Technological Institute, Njord and Bunker. We still have room for more companies who wish to sign up.

Sign up or learn more by contacting Magnus Gary at
