Blue Denmark is characterised by strong cooperation across the sector and a number of partnerships contribute to solving specific problems and coping with the challenges of the future.​

One of the strengths of Blue Denmark is strong cross-sectoral cooperation. Both between individual companies, between research and educational institutions and between public authorities, and across the entire cluster, it is a tradition to cooperate closely about solutions to specific problems, the development of new solutions and the handling of future challenges. Part of this cooperation takes place in formalised partnerships.
