BlueTech Cluster Alliance
GCE Ocean Technology is part of the BlueTech Cluster Alliance (BTCA) to open new markets for our cluster.
The BlueTech Cluster Alliance (BTCA) is a global network of industry-led BlueTech clusters that are committed to collaboration, developing joint-projects, promoting each other's member companies, and sharing information.
GCE Ocean Technology was entrusted with the lead and coordinator role in the BlueTech Cluster Alliance from 1 January 2020.
Networks Across Borders
International collaboration is an important next step in cluster development and GCE Ocean Technology aims to strengthen the collaboration among the world’s leading ocean technology nations and organisations. Being part of BTCA facilitates this and creates networks across borders for our members, paving the way for new exporting markets and business opportunities.

BTCA will advance both cluster-to-cluster and B2B collaboration across borders through events and initiatives that promote the “blue” economy and share common goals of fostering economic development, innovation and scientific discovery in the ocean domain.
There are nine members from eight countries represented in BTCA:
- Cornwall Marine Network (UK)
- Forum Oceano (Portugal)
- GCE Ocean Technology (Norway)
- Marine Institute (Ireland)
- Marine South East (UK)
- Oceans Advance (Canada)
- PLOCAN (Spain)
- Pole Mer Mediterranee (France)
- Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique (France)
- TMA Bluetech (U.S.)
BTCA will be expanding memberships to include more countries and ocean technology clusters that promote international cross-cluster collaboration. This is a growing meta structure which is an important next step developing the clusters and strengthening international business development and trade.
