The European Network of Maritime Clusters (ENMC) was established in 2005 as a platform for exchanging information and networking between the maritime cluster organizations of European member states. Since its foundation, the ENMC main principle is to establish an efficient framework for maritime sectorial cooperation, focused on vocalizing the unambiguous maritime interest to European policy makers towards a European maritime level playing field; a single European Maritime Cluster. The central goal of ENMC is thus to become an European Maritime Cluster as direct partner to the European Commission in all maritime affairs. The association is based in Luxembourg. 

Missions and main activities:

– Sharing information and best practices among its members;

– Promoting and defending the interests of its members principally active in the maritime sector;

–  Promoting networking among its members:
  • Representing the interests of its members vis-à-vis third parties;

  • Informing EU decisions makers about the strengths and opportunities of the maritime clusters;

  • Organizing and participating in meetings and events to reach our objectives;

  • Sharing policy documents and funding opportunities;

  • Organizing maritime stakeholders’ meetings in Brussels (Belgique).
