The Blue Denmark: Is it a Maritime Labour Mobility Cluster?

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

This paper makes an important contribution to the discussion about knowledge based localised externalities in the context of shipping and the maritime sector in Denmark. In the paper we ask if there is a national, knowledge‐based maritime cluster configured around the shipowners in Denmark.
This is an important question, since there may be a crucial link between the regional concentration of shipping companies and the productivity of the broader national maritime sector. The analysis shows that there is a national, knowledge based maritime cluster in Denmark, which is driven by the flow of skilled seafarers from the cargo carrying part of the shipping industry to the other maritime industries. However the analysis also shows that the Danish maritime cluster is somewhat different from, and more restricted, than what is usually implied when policymakers, maritime associations and other organisations talk about The Blue Denmark.
