European Maritime Day 2019

The European Maritime Day (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.

In 2019, the focus will be on blue entrepreneurship, innovation and investment to transform traditional maritime sectors and boost emerging technologies and value chains, with an emphasis on research and innovation for a plastic-free ocean.

Stakeholders will find the 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. Through a dedicated matchmaking application, participants will be able to ask for matchmaking slots with other participants and post their profiles online.

The EMD 2019 will also be celebrated across Europe, through ‘EMD in my Country’ events and activities, big and small, that in 2019 will focus, in particular, on mobilising citizens and young people around the theme of responsible and sustainable use of the oceans.
