The European Maritime Day (EMD) is the annual two-day event during which Europe’s maritime community meet to network, discuss and outline joint action on maritime affairs and sustainable blue economy.

Registration is now open, until 12 May 2022, for European Maritime Day 2022 which will take place on 19-20 May 2022 in Ravenna, Italy.

EMODnet is co-organising a stakeholder workshop on 19 May 2022 titled “Ocean Observation, Marine Data and Services for the EU Green Deal” in collaboration with the H2020 Blue-Cloud and EuroSea projects and the wider research community.

This year, EMD2022 will also host the first European Ocean Literacy Summit on 20 May bringing together partners and wider practitioners from the marine and maritime community to showcase and celebrate achievements of the first two years of the EU4Ocean Coalition for Ocean Literacy with three key commuities: The EU4Ocean Platform of marine/maritime professionals, the Youth4Ocean network of 16-30 year olds and the European Network of Blue Schools. The Summit will be open to all EMD2022 registrants and will be followed by an Ocean Literacy Festival on 20-22 May 2022, open to all.
