International Maritime Research Confluence - IMRC 2022!

IMRC is a one of a kind initiaitve to bring together the organizations and individuals working tirelessly on quantitative and qualitative research and study which will decide the future for the Maritime and Allied Industry in terms of safety, technology, conditions, economics, environment, etc. The IMRC is a 10-year project with biennial symposiums. The IMRC aims to advance the creation of the much-needed Eco-System which will facilitate meaningful research in the maritime sectors. The outcomes of the confluence shall be disseminated in the industry, further research promoted, and effective dialogue facilitated within the industry. This initiative is a result of our resolution to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations in 2015 and the outcomes of our Knowledge Seminar in March 2019. All the activities under the IMRC will aim to attain and maintain the 17 SDGs by furthering meaningful research activities. The Pilot IMRC Symposium was held on 13th and 14th february 2020 at the Indian Register of Shipping, Powai, Mumbai. 

IIRE vision for the 2020-2030

The trustees and directors at IIRE have resolved to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations which are also adopted by the IMO.

“The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.”

The SDGs have been adopted by ISF to fuel the ecosystem and the Research Confluence in a strategic and futuristic manner and ultimately achieve each goal. Alongside the adoption of the SDG’s, IIRE has advanced its activities towards their commitment to support creation of the much-needed Eco-System which will encourage and facilitate authentic and meaningful research in the maritime and allied sectors. The International Maritime Research Confluence starring from 2020 is being launched with the purpose and goal to further the research eco-system in the maritime industry.

  • To develop an eco-system which will advance meaningful research in maritime industry and popularize Indian research and researchers. 
  • To connect the researchers with companies and the industry looking for solutions and new innovations. 
  • To provide a research platform for the researchers, authors, decision-makers, associations, companies, etc.
