The CPMR and the Municipality of Piraeus organised a workshop on the theme of maritime start-ups during the European Maritime Days, held in Poole, England.

This workshop, organised on 18 May 2017, focused on local and regional initiatives to detect and support marine start-ups.

Involved in the workshop were:

  • The Municipality of Piraeus, which supports the Blue Growth initiative
  • The Västra Götaland Region, which highlighted the regional strategy and the activities of the maritime cluster of Vastra-Gotaland
  • The Pays de la Loire Region, which has launched the ‘Resolution’ initiative, aimed at connecting entrepreneurs and innovative companies
  • The Port XL initiative in Rotterdam

Presentations are available on the CPMR website.

The CPMR will continue to organise discussions between regions and initiatives on this subject, as part of its work on maritime investments.
