Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute (SMMI) is the largest entity of its kind in the world, with expertise in everything from naval architecture to the social sciences. Our 350 specialists work across academic divides, and in partnership with external organisations, to address issues in the natural ocean environment (marine) and human use of the sea (maritime). We foster new research collaborations, educate the next generation of maritime leaders, and generate knowledge and intelligence for businesses, governments and organisations.
