Thus, an establishing strategic cooperation between key stakeholders (maritime shipping industry, unions, research, education and training institutes, public authorities) is an industry-led initiative. All these parties may communicate among themselves and create value through the European, national and regional dimension, intercultural as well as multi-subject.
The broad array of stakeholders in the consortium – both in terms of geographical coverage and profiles will ensure the implementation of the networks at regional and/or national level.
