'Maria Tsakos' Foundation - International Centre of Maritime Research and Tradition N.G.O.

The "Maria Tsakos" Foundation- International Centre of Maritime Research and Tradition N.G.O. was founded in 2008 as part of the Group's inherent social responsibility to the maritime industry. Acknowledging the value of our maritime heritage was the idea upon which this non-governmental organization was created. The Foundation’s vision is to ensure that this tradition will not cease, but will be further enhanced and preserved.

Strategic directions of the Foundation are to:

  • Increase awareness of the significance and contribution of shipping to National and International Trade and the world economy and quality of life;
  • Advance and improve maritime education and training; and  promote these through scholarships, fellowships and grants;
  • Support and promote maritime history, heritage and culture;
  • Encourage and support young people in Greece and elsewhere to pursue careers at sea and in the maritime sector by advocating the values of the maritime profession;
  • Foster research projects related to the maritime sector and its people, and environmental protection, sustainability and resilience;
  • Encourage and cultivate maritime entrepreneurship;
  • Encourage and cultivate volunteerism, social responsibility and innovation throughout the formative years of life and beyond, and in all facets of society; and
  • Support humanitarian and philanthropic causes
