Maritime Matters in the 21st Century
The 1st SIRC-Nippon Fellow Maritime Conference
22 January 2009
This conference is an initiative of the SIRC-Nippon PhD fellows studying with the Seafarers International Research Centre at Cardiff University. The Fellowship Programme is funded by the Nippon Foundation with the aim of training maritime social scientists and developing an international network of researchers in this area. The conference is, therefore, the first in what is projected to be an annual event and will bring together Nippon Fellows, from SIRC and other institutions around the world, to discuss issues facing the maritime sector in the 21st century.

Don Eliseo Lucero-Prisno
Don Eliseo Lucero-Prisno: I am very elated to share with you the results of the SHINE Award (International Student Award) of the British Council which recognizes foreign students in the UK. I was judged as 'Highly Commended' among 1600 entrants recognizing my achievement as a PhD student. I am the sole winner from Cardiff University (and the very first from my country, the Philippines). My rich experience at SIRC and Cardiff University, my extra-curricular activities, my volunteer work with the Balud Project and my work in the maritime industry helped me clinch the award.
