European Maritime Day 2020: Apply for a stakeholder workshop

Submitted by Alina Danieles… on 28 October 2019

Established in 2008, European Maritime Day (EMD) is the annual EU meeting point on maritime affairs and sustainable blue growth, and the place where ‘Ocean Leaders Meet’ as the slogan goes.

Since 2008 the EMD is hosted each year by a different port city providing a unique flavour to its proceedings. In 2020 the City of Cork will open its gates and its safe harbour to Europe’s maritime stakeholders. European Maritime Day 2020 will be celebrated together with ‘ Our Ocean Wealth’ (OOW) , Ireland’s flagship annual event for the marine sector.

The EMD Conference and Expo will take place on 14 and 15 May 2020 in Cork City Hall.

Stakeholders’ workshops are at the core of the European Maritime Day. For 2020, the European Commission is planning to select 20 high-quality workshops (four slots with 5 workshops running in parallel).

Workshop organisers shall apply under one of the following themes by 3 December 2019 (cluster organisations can also apply):

  • blue economy
  • sea basin cooperation
  • maritime spatial planning 
  • ocean literacy, maritime skills and people
  • maritime security and surveillance 
  • marine pollution, climate action, decarbonisation
