The Maritime Skills Commission (MSC) is committed to regular and ongoing industrial engagement and we will be calling upon industry, academia and government to engage in evidence-based workshops. Whilst the MSC is not a funding body we are open to listening to ideas and will consider partnerships. If you have a project that aligns with our Scheme of Work and objectives we encourage you to make contact with a Commissioner – the MSC is comprised of Commissioners from across the breadth of the maritime sector. If you have any queries about this please feel free to contact Chrissie Clarke, Programme Manager here.
