The European Network of Maritime Clusters (ENMC) is a non-profit organization established on January 1st, 2023, in Luxembourg, after years of collaboration between the maritime Clusters part of the network. The network emerged in 2005 as a platform for exchanging information and networking between the maritime Cluster organizations of European member states.
Since its foundation, the ENMC’s main principle has been establishing an efficient framework for maritime sectorial cooperation, focused on vocalizing the unambiguous maritime interest to European policymakers towards a European maritime level playing field: a single European Maritime Cluster.
Missions and main activities:
The ENMC counts 11 national Cluster members. They represent Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Ukraine. The association is self-sufficient and counts on its members’ membership fees, which are national or regional maritime clusters (or similar entities) that can represent a country’s maritime interests.
The ENMC management team comprises Fabrice Maire (Chairman) and Axelle Salvage (Coordinator). The ENMC has a Presidium consisting of four Vice-Presidents: Frédéric Moncany de Saint-Aignan (Cluster Maritime Français), Claudio Graziano (Federazione del Mare), Alejandro Aznar (Cluster Maritimo Español), and Verena Ohms (Nederland Maritiem Land).
