Fórum Oceano – Association of the Sea Economy and AEP – Portuguese Entrepreneurial Association are organizing FÓRUM DO MAR 2015, the 5th Edition of the International Event FÓRUM DO MAR (Sea Forum), to be held between the 16th and the 19th of November, 2015, at Porto Cruise Terminal (Port of Leixões) and at Porto International Fair, EXPONOR, Portugal.

 

   As in previous years FÓRUM DO MAR will have International Conferences, Seminars and Workshops, promoted by the sea cluster partners. On the 16th, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, there will be the side event WavEC 2015 Seminar: Portugal and France – A driving force on research and innovation in Marine Renewable Energies, co-organized by the WavEC Offshore Renewables, the French Embassy and the French Institute of Portugal (more information here). Between 16th and 19th, at EXPONOR, will be held the PORTUGAL ATLANTIC CONFERENCE, co-organized by DGPM – Directorate General for Maritime Policy and Fórum Oceano.




Portugal Atlantic Conference (PAC) – Potential for Growth and Internationalization of the Sea Economy
The Directorate General for Maritime Policy (DGPM) and Fórum Ocean decided to cooperate and hold at the same time the 5th edition of FÓRUM DO MAR (Sea Forum) and the 3rd edition of the Portugal Atlantic Conference. It was considered highly desirable that both events coincide on the same date and in the same space, avoiding scattered initiatives and duplication of effort, in the belief that in this way a better service will be provided to the maritime community and also will be an appropriate way to celebrate the National Day of the Sea (celebrated in Portugal at November 16th).

To participate in this programme you need to be a Fórum Oceano Member, AEP Member, Exhibitor at FÓRUM DO MAR 2015 or an International participant. Registrations for the Business2Sea event here.
