The centre will also act to increase the contact and collaboration between the students and the industry through student projects and thereby make the education more attractive for the students and the graduates more attractive and employable for the industry.
Maritime DTU will function as a platform for new collaboration agreements with other leading universities regarding education and research within the maritime area.
