International Cooperation

European Integration through research and innovation networks

The maritime industry – consisting of shipyards, system suppliers, classification societies, shipowners, ports, firms in the offshore industry, providers of services and research facilities - is a significant factor for the German and European economies. In view of intensifying global competition, particularly in the R&D area, European cooperation is becoming increasingly important.

CMT accordingly represents its members in a large number of European bodies devoted to the coordination of maritime research and development.

The following are especially noteworthy:

COREDES - the research and  development working group of CESA – the European Shipbuilding Association CESA (national contact point)

EMECrid – the R&D Coordination Group of the European Marine Equipment Council (national contact point)

ECMAR – European Council for Maritime Applied R&D

In addition, CMT is a member of the technical committee of the EuroYards Group.

CMT cooperates actively in the WATERBORNE European technology platform and coordinates a series of European projects designed to create scope for European research, such as, e.g., ENCONA and ENCOMAR.
