European Maritime Day 2017: preparations in full swing

24/01/2017

Preparations for the EMD 2017 Conference in Poole, UK (18 & 19 May 2017) are in full swing. Following our call to maritime stakeholders launched last fall, we have received 50 proposals for workshops and project pitches under the following headings: 1) Innovation & Growth, 2) People & Skills, 3) Safety & Security, 4) Sustainability & Governance. Selected stakeholder workshops will be part of an attractive programme that we are currently putting together and which will be announced soon.

EUROPEAN MARITIME DAY is celebrated annually across Europe on 20 May to raise the visibility of Europe's maritime sectors and support an integrated approach to maritime affairs And you? How are you celebrating the European Maritime Day in your country? If you want to contribute, please let us know and  have a look at My European Maritime Day event. We can help you promoting your own EMD event elsewhere in EU.

Applications for organising an EMD event at national, regional and local level, in any of the EU Member States during the month of May 2017 are now open (deadline: 10 March 2017).
