    Sustainable Ocean Summit

    Rotterdam, The Netherlands

    The role of Maritime Clusters in advancing sustainable development will be a special feature of the Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) - the annual gathering of the global ocean business community, taking place this year in Rotterdam, 30 Nov-2 Dec.
    Maritime clusters can be engines for developing innovation, technology, solutions and business opportunities – all of which can (and increasingly are) helping tackle the sustainable development challenges and opportunities of the ocean business community.
    At the SOS 2016, the focus on Maritime Clusters will include:
    • A plenary presentation by Francis Vallat (CEO, European Network of Maritime Clusters) on “The Role and Value of Maritime Clusters for Sustainable Development”.
    • A parallel session on Maritime Clusters, with a panel of Maritime Cluster leaders.
    • A Maritime Cluster Roundtable/Forum to bring together Maritime Cluster leaders from around the world in their own gathering.
