Rio de Janeiro Naval Technological Cluster Association

Founded on November 13, 2019, the Naval Technological Cluster Association of Rio de Janeiro is an initiative of EMGEPRON, NUCLEP, AMAZUL and CONDOR. The Association focuses on promoting the internal market, training and education, innovation and technology, valuing the local market and productive chain between small, medium and large companies. In addition, we seek to mobilize the seven cities around Guanabara Bay (Rio, Niterói, Magé, Duque de Caxias, São Gonçalo, Guapimirim and Itaboraí), with the State of Rio and the Union, to create mechanisms and enable actions for the development of the maritime industry as a whole.

The Association's priority axes are the densification of production chains related to military and merchant shipbuilding and repair, the generation of stimuli to the sea economy - which includes the areas of tourism and gastronomy, sale of nautical charts, hydrographic surveys, dredging, maintenance vessels, sale of naval assets, dockwork and expertise, in addition to subsidizing and strengthening the export platform of the industrial defense base.
