“We enhance study
The LAMET FOUNDATION, founded in 1968 and recognised by the Ministry for Education and Culture, is a non-profit body, whose aim is to promote scientific, legal and cultural study and investigation of the maritime and transportation sector, at all levels, promoting activities which lead to a better understanding of the relationships between man and the sea.
It was inspired and founded by Mr. Pedro Lamet Orozco (Cádiz, 1905 - 1984), to whom sea and maritime matters were a professional activity and personal passion. On the occasion of paying homage to him on 15th June 1968 by giving him the Grand Cross of the Civil Merit, Mr. Lamet decided to contribute the remaining funds received for the organization of the event, to the setting up of a charitable-training Foundation with a maritime vocation.
Since its commencement, the Foundation has developed a series of activities, amongst which are successive editions of the COMISMAR AWARD, as well as the sponsorship of other investigation projects, publishing of literary works and concession of study grants.
