Ten Years ago, with the proposal of a few marine-related universities, the International Alliance of Marine-related Institutions (IAMRI) was established in 2004 and decided to place its secretariat in Ocean University of China.

    IAMRI is an international Marine-related higher education and research network which made up of 9 universities or institutions from 9 different countries. The main purpose of IAMRI is to activate and reinforce the international cooperation of Marine-related Institutions for higher education and research. It is an alliance which will build and strengthen the collaboration and cooperation between the world’s Marine-related institutions through education, research and many other areas. The nine members work together to address the major challenges of our time. We share similar values, a global vision and a commitment to educating future world leaders.
