European Maritime Day

The focus of the European Maritime Day 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal, was on blue entrepreneurship, research, innovation and investment to transform traditional maritime sectors and boost emerging technologies and value chains. 

The EMD is the annual EU meeting point on maritime affairs and blue growth. It targets maritime professionals, entrepreneurs and ocean leaders from businesses, governments, public institutions, NGOs and academia.

Stakeholders find at EMD a great opportunity to touch base with strategic partners, to make new contacts, get visibility for projects, activities and achievements, gain new insights into the evolving EU policy and funding landscape and provide input into European Maritime Policy formulation.

This year we offered an upgraded Blue Expo experience and pitch stage for stakeholders and companies to present their products and services. Through EMD dedicated matchmaking application, participants were able to ask for meeting slots with other participants and post their profiles online.

So let’s dance along the waves and celebrate all things maritime as well as the gift our seas and oceans provide, from the oxygen we breathe, to the fish we eat, to the inspiration that shapes our culture and moves our bards and poets! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_2fyB4dj4U
