CINOP will-in cooperation with STC International and IHE Delft-be implementing a three-year project in Bangladesh with the aim of contributing to a sustainable maritime and port sector. This project is funded by Nuffic within the Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP). The goal is to strengthen the capacity of the BSMR Maritime University and the Chittagong Port Authority. This will enable the training of a high quality workforce that will be of great value to the economic development of the country.

In addition to strengthening the capacities of the educational institutions -from individual competencies of teachers to organizational capabilities for innovation- CINOP is strongly committed to the power of collaboration. The formation of strategic multi-stakeholder partnerships between educational institutions, the government and the business community form the basis of this project.

The Netherlands and Bangladesh are the two largest Delta countries in the world. This project contributes to the important relationship between these countries on a subject that is very familiar to them: the sea and shipping.
