Consortium for Maritime Research
Facilitating maritime research at Old Dominion University and the Hampton Roads region.
Old Dominion University sits in the middle of one of the world's most significant ports with diverse maritime interests. Recognizing this special opportunity, the faculty researchers in the University are creating a Consortium for Maritime Research.
Goal of the Consortium
The goal of the consortium is to facilitate research in all areas related to the maritime at Old Dominion University and the Hampton Roads region.
We try to meet at least once per semester but if you have a good idea and think a broader discussion would be useful please work with the coordinators listed below to schedule a meeting.
