Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

Polish Maritime Cluster is a key maritime cluster in Central and Estern Europe, an active maritime cluster player in the Baltic Sea Region and the EU, as well as a member of the European Network of Maritime Clusters, United Nation Global Compact and European Cluster Collaboration Platform. The Polish Maritime Cluster focuses on transferring knowledge and organizing business, science and administration cooperation in a global and regional scale. The cluster thinks globally, but acts locally.

Its high position in the national and international market owes to its supporting participants when publishing an up-to-date relevant information on www.klastermorski.com.pl and FB/TW. Cluster registers up to a thousand website visits or browser search per day. It is a significant outcome, remembering cluster’s exclusive and international-wide character. Such website section, as for instance, Clusters Observatory, Maritime Law, Baltic Sea Region Maritime Clusters Network, Port Community System, Maritime Policy, Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020, Smart Specializations, Maritime Think Tank, requires greater recognition.

            PMC participates in numerous ENMC inititatives together with Karmenu Vella (European Commissioner for Environment, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs), and Gesine Meissner (European Parliament, "Seas and Coastal Areas Intergroup" of the European Parliament). PMC interacts also in the annual European Maritime Day by organising workshops and discussion panels (Gdansk, Brema), cooperates with the Polish Chamber of Maritime Commerce, Polish Nautological Association and other maritime clusters in Poland, i.e. Westpomorenian Maritime Cluster in Szczecin, Maritime Cluster of West-Pomerania and Transport-Logistics North-South Cluster.
