The "Northern Maritime University" (NMU) Network project is building up a transnational network of universities in the North Sea Region (NSR). Against a background of growing maritime traffic, port development, and rising environmental challenges, within an increasingly intermodal environment, maritime business managers need to be better prepared by possessing multidisciplinary knowledge and the right skills set to cope with current and future challenges.

The NMU project developed qualification offerings that are focused to meet the needs of maritime industries today and in the future. The multidisciplinary qualification offerings developed within the NMU project for the maritime transport industry will benefit greatly from exploiting the diversity, complementarity and synergies of the NMU partners.

DSN was charged with the project and financial management and supported the project communication. After the end of the three-years project phase, the project was extended to one and a half years (January 2008 to July 2012). The total volume was thus 4.7 million euros and was funded with 2.3 million euros from the European Union in the framework of the Interreg IVB programme.
