The Challenge

As international exchange hubs, ports develop solutions to enhance their economic and logistical performance and reduce their environmental impact. If you have new innovative solutions for building the port of the future, come test and develop them in Marseille!

Why this challenge?

The Port of Marseille wants to develop solutions to secure its excellence in the fields of port logistics, energy performance and digital solutions.

Industrial projects, investments, and research programs have already been developed on the ground to address these issues.

To upgrade the ecosystem already present, develop and test innovative solutions, the economic, port, academic and institutional stakeholders have linked up to implement an open innovation program.

The Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Aix Marseille Provence, Aix Marseille University and the Port of Marseille Fos have mobilized and obtained the support of thecamp, an innovation campus for exploring the future, and of eight international companies present in the Aix Marseille Provence metropolis, to provide innovative companies with exeperimentation sites, data, teams and means of communication.
