The 2022 Maritime Masters Finalist Reception took place on Thursday 13th October at Clarksons London office. The event was the fifth iteration of the Maritime Masters programme, where finalists from each of the nine participating universities presented their research to an industry audience with one named the winner through a public vote. 

The winner of the Maritime Masters Competition 2022 was Aidan Carroll with his research on the retention of British seafarers.

We are grateful to the Maritime Masters programme sponsors, Royal HaskoningDHV, Clarksons and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, for their support!
