Technical Secretariat of the Ría de Vigo Nautical Entities Cluster

Within the framework of the Blue Growth Strategy of the Vigo Port Authority, ICSEM has promoted the formation of the ARIVEN association, which seeks to strengthen the nautical industry and promote the competitiveness and internationalisation of the entities in the Ría de Vigo.
