Shared Policies

The European Network of Maritime Clusters (ENMC) is a cooperation between all the national maritime cluster associations. ENMC has two formal meetings each year: one is the spring meeting to discuss the year strategy and the second one is the annual meeting in November. The organization is self-sustaining and members pay a membership fee. Cooperation with other European maritime stakeholders (mainly in Brussel) is crucial to understand the needs of the entire maritime industry. At least twice a year ENMC hosts a joint meeting with the European maritime associations to discuss the joint maritime goals. New markets and technologies are included when maritime organizations play a role and for that ENMC will follow the Waterborne platform closely.
