Clusters, Collaboration and a Common Blue Voice, 16th March 2016, OI London

Clusters, Collaboration and a Common Blue Voice is an open networking event taking place on Wednesday 16th March 2016 at Ocean International 2016, 13:00-14:30 in the Trade and Innovation Theatre at the exhibition.

The Maritime Alliance (TMA), is hosting this session which will start with short presentations from leaders of active BlueTech clusters in several countries leading to a moderated discussion with the audience.

Marine South East has been working closely for the past two years with The Maritime Alliance, based in San Diego, on setting up a platform for joint international initiatives and investment in the Blue Economy.

Blue Economy and BlueTech clusters are the appropriate entities to coordinate academia, government, and industry on a region-by-region and country-by-country basis.

International cluster collaboration is essential so we can learn from each other, help each other and our respective members, and to promote a coordinated Blue Voice at national and international levels. The technical ability and will to develop ocean industries is growing and international collaboration is critical to promote win-win opportunities for our clusters and nations.

Speakers at the event will include:

* Stephane Claisse - Deputy Director, Pole Mer Mediterranee (France)

* Dr. Valerie Cummins - Director, Irish Maritime and Energy Resource Cluster (Ireland)

* Gordon Gale - Executive Director, Ocean Technology Council of Nova Scotia (Canada)

* Greg Murphy - Executive Director, The Maritime Alliance (US)

* Jonathan Williams - CEO, Marine South East (UK)

The event will be facilitated by Michael B.Jones, President of The Maritime Alliance.
