  • Promotion and exposure in both national and international forums, exhibitions, and conferences

Who can apply?

We are always open to applications from new partners who share our aim to develop and commercialize sustainable solutions for the maritime sector and related ocean industries. All partners are expected to contribute to our pool of expertise and share our core values: commitment, fresh thinking, trust, openness, and willingness to collaborate.

All new partners must be approved by the board. When approved, new partners must sign a cooperation agreement, which regulates the participation in business and development projects instigated through our network. Upon approval, the annual membership fee will be invoiced within 14 days.
