Maritime Development Center (MDC) has been asked by the Danish Society for Naval Architecture and Marine Engeneering (DSNAME) to organize and execute the conference in 2021. A Lcal organizing Committee (LoC) has been established with representatives from the shipping industry.
MDC, together with the professional conference organizer MCI and the LoC, is now well into planning the conference.
MDC is the cluster organization for the Blue Denmark and is a network organization for maritime companies and organizations. MDC was founded in 1999 and counts around 170 member organizations.
As a triple helix cluster organization, we gather private companies (ship owners, ports, manufacturers, consultants, service providers, lawyers etc.), authorities (ministries, regulatory bodies, local authorities etc.) and research and knowledge institutions (universities, research maritime schools and academies). Our strength is to establish cooperation all across the Blue Denmark.
In 2017 MDC was awarded the Cluster Excellence Gold Label, as per EU guidelines. This is the highest possible recognition for cluster organizations.
