UMC is a platform for the Ukrainian maritime industry companies to share best practices and develop a consolidated position.

During the two years of UMC functioning the number of cluster members reached 26 organizations. Among them leading shipbuilding enterprises of the region, including Defense Segment, Mykolaiv Chamber of Commerce and City Council,  Maritime Universities, innovative engineering companies and SMEs.
