The European Maritime Day (EMD) is the annual meeting point for Europe’s community of maritime professionals to come together, exchange knowledge and forge the partnerships needed for joint action. It was created in 2008 by the EU institutions in order to provide a forum for people from different areas of the ocean economy, from the world of science, from public government and administration to showcase their activities, learn from each other, discuss cross-cutting issues and develop joint visions.
The main event of EMD is the" European Maritime Day Conference", held in a different region with a different theme each year. This year, the 2-day conference will take place in Poole with the title "The Future of our Seas".
