European Maritime Day

The European Maritime Day (EMD) is the annual meeting point for Europe’s maritime community to network, discuss and forge joint action. 


EMD is celebrated annually across Europe at the end of May to raise the visibility of maritime sectors and support an integrated approach to maritime affairs.The EMD 2018 conference and exhibition will take place on 31 May and 1 June 2018 in Burgas, Bulgaria.

This year, JPI Oceans will be hosting a workshop looking into the Blue Bioeconomy. The workshop will invite maritime and other stakeholders to discuss their needs and find ways for them to contribute to Blue Bioeconomy. The outcome of the workshop is to develop an understanding of the multitude of opportunities within the Blue Bioeconomy and identify how to work together in adding value to marine bioresources. These outcomes will feed into the proposed Cofund project on the Blue Bioeconomy, forming the starting point for future collaborations.
