The Nautical Institute runs many projects aimed at benefiting both the membership and the industry. In 2001, the Institute took a strategic decision to base its future plans on the basis of projects.
Major projects being run by The Nautical Institute include:
- The Navigator magazine
- Human Element Awareness Campaign
- Safe Mooring Operation Guidelines
Many of these projects are aimed at improving issues affecting the shipping industry in general and are therefore supported by leading industry organisations through sponsorship or partnership.
