Future and the "CONFLUENCE" Initiatives

ISF Group is soon completing 20 years and we plan to dedicate the next decade towards creating a more sustainable future for our industry and society and advancing the research eco-system towards attaining the same. Our association and patronage from the INDUSTRY and ACADEMIA has helped us reach a position so that we can create futuristic and strategic goals for ourselves. We hope for continued faith and support from all our patrons and associates. 

Below is a brief on our new initiatives. If you wish to know more about the new initiatives, please feel free to connect with us.


Adoption of the UN SDGs

With the Group on the threshold of entering the third decade, the Trustees and Directors resolved in March 2019 to dedicate the next decade (2020-2030) in pursuit of supporting the

Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in 2015.

(These SDGs include No poverty, Good health and well-being for people, Quality education, Gender equality, Clean water and sanitation, Affordable and clean energy, Decent work and economic growth, Sustainable cities and communities, Climate action, etc.)

As a result, there will be a greater focused approach in ensuring that the services of the Group achieve enhanced effectiveness and remain aligned in that direction. In order to spread awareness and influence a larger section of the industry and society at large, the group has launched two key initiatives:


International Maritime Research Conflunce (IMRC)

Relying on the expertise of the Group in research activities and publication, our enterprise embarks on organizing  biennial International Maritime Research Confluences (IMRC) from 2020 onwards. The first Confluence is to be held in Mumbai on the 13th  and 14th February 2020. The outcomes of the Confluence shall be disseminated in the industry; further research encouraged and promoted, and effective dialogue facilitated in the direction of making our world a better place to live.

Research with a Purpose!!


The Confluence

Development of an ecologically balanced model campus “The Confluence” which would be utilized for research work and development/delivery of educational training programs in support of various SDGs. The holistic residential campus as a model campus is expected to demonstrate a balanced approach towards life, development and growth.
