Last week, the Center for Maritime Economics and Logistics (MEL) was present at the Global Maritime Summit (GMI) event in Mumbai, India, and it was an unforgettable experience!

Our colleague Maurice Jansen (Port Ecosystems Expert) had the incredible opportunity to connect with a multitude of enthusiastic individuals eager to advance their education and careers in the maritime industry. We were thrilled to see the overwhelming interest and passion for pursuing higher education within this dynamic field.

To all of you who visited our stall, thank you! Your curiosity and ambition fuel our commitment to providing top-notch education and helping you achieve your academic and professional aspirations.

Stay tuned for more updates, as we continue to empower the next generation of maritime leaders. We can’t wait to embark on this exciting journey with you!

The MEL Office has the pleasure to announce that the first formal Alumni Event will be held in Athens, Greece on June 26th, 2015.

Should you wish to register for this event, please send an email to lefel@ese.eur.nl.

Please find below a personal message from Christos Varias, MEL Region Manager of Greece, who is looking forward to welcome MEL Alumni from all over the globe to the first formal MEL Alumni Event.

“Dear fellow Alumni,

Studying at MEL gave us all the opportunity to not only explore and broaden our knowledge about shipping but also to make good friends and hopefully colleagues one day.

The MEL faculty has taken the initiative to strengthen the MEL Alumni Community in several ways and one of it was to appoint one MEL Alumnus from each country as the Region Manager of that particular country, hoping to strengthen the bond between MEL Alumni living and working in the same region as well as to welcome visiting MEL Alumni to their region. Taking this opportunity, I would like to invite all MEL Alumni living and working in Greece, but also all MEL Alumni who might be in Greece on the 26th of June to the first formal MEL Alumni event in Athens.

The event will take place at ‘’Ark restaurant bar’’ at Asteria Glyfada, Grigoriou Lampraki 2, on Friday 26 of June at 18:30.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Best regards,

Christos L. Varias

MEL Regional Manager of Greece”
