European Maritime Day Lisbon 2019

16 May – 17 May 2019
Lisboa, Portugal

The focus of the European Maritime Day 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal, will be on blue entrepreneurship, innovation and investment to transform traditional maritime sectors and boost emerging technologies and value chains. A specific focus will be put on research and innovation for a plastic-free ocean.

The EMD is the annual EU meeting point on maritime affairs and blue growth. It targets maritime professionals, entrepreneurs and ocean leaders from Academia, NGOs, businesses, governments and public institutions. 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.

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. The EMD portal lets you find which events are happening around Europe and in your neighborhood.

Registration is open until 15 May 2019.
