Every year the NCMM arranges a two-day conference on topics related to seafarers’ health in collaboration with the Maritime Forum of Bergen, the Norwegian Maritime Directorate, the Norwegian Association for Maritime Medicine and the Royal Norwegian Navy.
There was no conference arranged in 2010, due to a shift from autumn (2009) to spring (2011).
The 2009 conference covered aspects of the theme ”The human factor”. The 2011 conference dealt with the consequences of the Maritime Labour Convention of 2006 for the seafarers, the shipping industry and the authorities and was held in Bergen 23. -24. March 2011 at Scandic Hotel Conference Centre.
The topic for this year's conference was the consequences for different parties in the maritime sector when the MLC enters into force. See news article.
