About us

The Maritime Security Forum (hereafter used with the acronym “MSF”) is the scientific initiative of the ADMIRALS CLUB and is a platform for creating and disseminating knowledge and information in maritime security, which carries out a scientific activity and organizes information and public debate events. The MSF is also an environment for public dissemination and communication in naval policy, shipping, safety, maritime security and defence. Through cooperation with the professional-institutional and the academic and scientific research environment, the MSF offers opportunities to connect and integrate into the national networks of knowledge, dissemination and collaboration in the fields of naval policies, the development of the Blue Economy, security and defence, safety, maritime resilience and naval transport, to develop synergistic programs in the areas of interest.
