The focus of the European Maritime Day (EMD) 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal, will be on blue entrepreneurship, research, innovation and investment to boost sustainable technologies and emerging value chains in the wider ocean economy.
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 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.
An upgraded Blue Expo experience and pitch stage will be offered to stakeholders and companies to present their products and services. Through EMD dedicated matchmaking application, participants will be able to ask for meeting slots with other participants and post their profiles online.
The European Maritime Day 2019 will also be celebrated across Europe, through ‘EMD in my Country’ events and activities, that in 2019 will focus, in particular, on mobilising citizens and young people around the theme of responsible and sustainable use of the oceans.
