About MML, MarLEM & Atlantic Knowledge Triangle

This Masterís Degree Programme in Maritime Logistics is a fundamental outcome of the†MarLEM Project (Maritime Logistics Engineering and Management), funded by the European Commission (European Maritime and Fisheries Fund) within the framework of the Blue Economy concept, in which NOVA SST and the Portuguese Naval Academy are the main academic partners. The MarLEM project aims at filling the gaps between higher education offerings in the area of maritime logistics and the labor market needs, i.e., the necessary skills versus the available ones in the sector. MarLEM benefitted from the support of the†Atlantic Knowledge Triangle, a network of Industry, Academia and Authorities entities that cooperated to establish a better framework for skills development, continuous improvement, and alignment with identified needs.
