Maritime Transport Cluster (MTC) will build a structure for exchanging information on the latest knowledge and experiences concerning maritime transport issues by establishing a network covering all transport related North Sea Region Programme (NSRP) projects. MTC will identify synergies between NSRP project results and consolidate these into overall programme outcomes on transport. The results will be discussed with the business, public sector & research actors and matched with industry and research trends. Afterwards outcomes will be connected to policy developments with a focus on future transport and cohesion policy.
