World Maritime University Survey

The Nautical Institute encourages seafarers in our network to take the latest World Maritime University survey which seeks to find out seafarers’ views on hours of work/rest, workload, and ship manning.

Seafarers who are currently working on any commercial ship or who have worked on such ships at any time after 1st February 1997 are invited to participate in the survey.

The survey is conducted by the World Maritime University (WMU) in collaboration with the International Federation of Shipmasters' Associations (IFSMA), the Nautical Institute (NI), the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), and the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN). The survey is part of research funded by the ITF Seafarers’ Trust. At the conclusion of this survey, WMU will work with the maritime community to consider improvements.

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.

The deadline for this survey is 31st December 2022. Please follow the link to complete the survey:

Please do share the survey link with your own networks and any seafarers who might be interested in participating in this survey.

Stay safe everybody...


Thanks and Kind Regards,

Greece (Hellenic) Branch Committee
