The purpose of the project is to highten the level of competence in the maritime business sector. The activities of the project will contribute to maintaining positive growth, as well as securing maritime jobs, regionally and nationally. These factors will improve the ability of the Danish maritime cluster to compete in the international markets.


The ambition is to bring the competence of the maritime cluster to a level of excellence. As part of project The Danish Maritime Cluster will work with knowledge institutions, associations, businesses and authorities to create educational programs ranging from shorter bachelor degrees to graduate programs and phd. funding.

To support the effort in the educational landscape the project will also work to support the growth and innovation of businesses in the maritime sector. More specifically, projects will be launched to promote the use of highly educated graduates in SMEs. The effort will be driven, in part, by bringing together the educational institutions with businesses to realize the full potential of the strengthened competences.
