The Maritime Industry in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
The maritime industry, as an industry with a bright future and international focus, is an outstanding structural characteristic of the economy and the economic backbone of the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The maritime shipping and port industry segments are significant drivers of maritime economic growth. The shipbuilding industry has established itself as the dominant core branch of the maritime economy. Specialized shipbuilding is very technology intensive, has a high potential for development and, with its innovative strength, is globally successful.
The ports in the state with their connected logistics industry are important growth impulses and in addition to shipbuilding, shipping and port industries, the state is extremely competent in maritime technology sectors. Offshore technologies are considered to be sunrise industries where the close integration of research and production represents the driving force of their development.

The science and education structures and their achievement potential are of prime importance, whereby transfer of knowledge between business and science significantly increases the competitive ability of maritime companies.
