Global Maritime Forum (GMF)


Organized and executed by the Science and Technology (S&T) Department, the Global Maritime Forum (GMF) is a 3-day workshop designed to stimulate discussion and action on solutions to complex issues of technology and its effects on national maritime policy. 

The GMF directly supports the S&T Department's mission and strategic guidance as set forth by the Director of National Intelligence to engage academia, think tanks, the private sector, and foreign governments for a common understanding of the implications of emerging technologies in the maritime domain. It represents one of NMIO’s more ambitious outreach efforts in which leading U.S. and international experts collaborate on presentations and panel discussions to explore and share technical information and formulate actionable recommendations for senior government officials.

Each year Director, NMIO chairs the GMF with a local partner and/or sponsor. In previous years, the S&T Department has partnered and co-sponsored the GMF with Italian Navy and Centro Alti Studi per la Difesa, NASA AMES, the Applied Physics Lab at the University of Washington, the University of Liverpool, and the Applied Research Laboratory at the University of Hawaii.
