The European Network of Maritime Clusters was established in 2005 as a platform for the exchange of 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.
Objective: to promote and reinforce the European maritime sector and the maritime economy as a whole
Members: The national maritime cluster from every country in the EU can become a member, one country one vote. The major strategic decisions are being taken in the Annual General Meeting.
The day to day activity of ENMC are managed by the presidium. In 2018 the Presidency changed hands to the Netherlands, with vice presidents from France, Italy and Spain.
