Waterborne Vision 2030

Powered by continuing research and innovation, the EU maritime industry will maintain its position as a global leader in high value maritime business. Our ships will be the smartest, greenest and safest on the World’s seas; our autonomous vessels will be an increasingly common sight around the world and our passenger ships will be renowned globally for their safety and sophistication.

The future for the EU maritime industry is bright, with global trends clearly indicating an increasing market for the sophisticated, high value technologies and products for which our industry is renowned.
