We use three pillars

pioneering & investigative

involved & urgent

The world faces many changes and challenges.We can use past, present, and future maritime developments to encourage debate on current issues.

entrepreneurial & connective

We are entrepreneurial by nature, we stimulate talent and occupy a central position in society.. Our open culture, with a focus on inclusiveness and visitor participation, is the foundation for productive collaborations
