The idea of an all embracing Maritime Stakeholders Platform was launched at the European Maritime Day Stakeholder Conference in Rome on 20 May 2009. Stakeholder representatives agreed to set up a "Steering Group", based on the five pillars: industry, environmental NGOs, science, regional authorities and recreational "users" of the sea.
