The Confederation of European Matitime Technology Societies (CEMT) provides a forum for the exchange of information and views by the constituent societies on matters relating to the education and professional development of naval architects, marine engineers and others in the field of maritime technology. CEMT provides a link with European and international maritime organisations, by which the constituent societies and their members may be informed of matters relating to the education and professional development of maritime engineers, being discussed or considered by those organisations.
Professional institutions and learned societies in the field of maritime technology in the countries of Europe are eligible to become members of CEMT.
The Confederation is governed by a Council of representatives of each constituent society. The Chairman of the Council is a senior member of a constituent society, elected by the Council, and serves for a period of two years. The Council meets twice a year, and is served by a permanent Secretary. CEMT is registered as an independent foundation, and is funded solely by its members. More about Organisation & Membership
